....and so have I! Or rather my art interests have changed. Over the past several months, I have been inexplicably drawn to stencils, stamps, and mixed media - OH MY!
Not only that, but my work has gone in the direction of Zetti, Steampunk, and Grunge ....although, I have not given up my passion for intense color.
It began with my personal art journaling; trying to figure out where I belong in this world, now that I am a new bride of 2 years .....
- at the age of 62 -
- - to BOB. (I adore him!)
And, moving, after 12 years, from my home in Savannah, GA, to a home in the country on Lake Lanier, in Cumming, GA. (It's so BEAUTIFUL HERE!!!)
But you can believe me when I tell you that Cumming, GA is not the art center of the world.....or the US, ....... or even Georgia. If I was a landscape, or still life painter, I'd have it made. But I'm not.

So, I make no apologies.
I am what I am....yup, I'm not a SERIOUS artist.
(gasp) And I'm happy!
If you like "happy", please follow me on this adventure of mine. I say adventure because I have no idea what I'm doing!!!! As usual.....LOL!
But I'm going to learn as I go - I will! And so might you! On the other hand, if you have any advice for a 62-year-young, techno-preneur-wannabe, I welcome it.
First step: revvv up this blog. My goal is to post weekly - - not weakly!
Next: start filming my art journaling process with my (first ever) smart phone. I bought a Samsung Galaxy Note 4 and I LOVE it!!!!! (Don't tell Bob - he knows I have the phone....but he doesn't know I LOVE IT!!!!)
I have watched so many of you on YouTube and you inspire me every day! Now I want to share my art discoveries.
I'm stuck up here in the woods - not an ideal place to find other art journaling enthusiasts. My only hope is you! You, the internet. You, on YouTube. You, on Facebook. You, on Instagram (?) - ok, now out of my comfort zone.....but - - - I can-do-eeeeet! : ]
Seriously tho, y'know what my biggest hope is? I hope that someday I can share this post with my new grandkidz (today ages 2, 5, 7 & 9), and show them how far NanaCat has come in a world that is, today, REeeeeeealy foreign to me. Foreign, that is, except for the art. The art always speaks my language; always recognizes my soul; always makes me feel happy and totally at home.

I'm sensing a theme for a journal page!!!!!!

dear Pop-in-law. But, I have 4 days off after that till I
have to travel again. And baby - -

Please follow me.......
I'm very needy. : ] hahahaha!
