so many years now I've been an ardent blogger, I've defended my
decision to share my life with complete and total strangers to people
who closely share my real world. I've tried so many times to explain my
reasons for putting my life in words and pictures out to the great
expanse of the internet. Sometimes I've had my trust shaken, but for
the most part, I've received support and even affection from this great
and wonderful community that makes up Blogland.
as I write this, I find the words are a struggle and my eyes are blurred
with emotion. One of my dearest internet friends has suffered a
terrible loss that I'm unable to express. Please join me in support of a
dear and wonderful person, Gretel Parker, who needs our love and help at this terrible time.
6 years ago I began my first blog. Gretel was hugely supportive to me
and gave me so much advice about my art and the dedication needed to
succeed. She wrote to me and helped me in so many ways, sometimes just
by being her own wonderful self. I've read similar stories from other
bloggers who have been touched by Gretel's kindness. Please, lets all
join together and share the message in the above link. Please, lets
show Gretel how much she is truly loved at this difficult time in her
life and show the world what a wonderful caring community Blogland is.
The bonds and friendships we make here are just as real and important as
the ones we make with people close to us in our everyday lives.
(I'm sorry this is on both of my blogs, but I feel it's so important that it's worth repeating!)

I was looking for the Manga sketches and came across a couple of pictures of Finn. He can be quite a time waster for me, as he's so acrobatic and loves an audience :D
The Angel painting is progressing slowly, mostly due to the fact that it's so cold in the Studio and I've spent a great deal of time in front of the fire re-writing my Reiki training manuals! Naughty me, I must find more hours in the day :D
