Lucky Number 13

Thirteen years ago my son set up a website for me called Every once in awhile he'd ask me when I planned to start teaching online classes. I always had an excuse to give him. After awhile I stopped even thinking about it and he stopped asking. Two weeks ago there was an unexpected convergence of the stars and everything fell in to place for me to finally start teaching. When I mentioned it to my son he said "Good Art Demos is ready for you. I've renewed it every year on my birthday". Thirteen years is a long time to keep believing in someone, especially someone who doesn't believe in herself. But it's finally time. I hope you'll join me as I set foot on this amazing journey of learning.

On October 8th my father would have turned 90. The old saying of "when a person dies, a library burns" is something I hope never to be attributed to me. I want to reach out and touch everyone who wants to learn something new. To grow as a creative soul and connect with others of similar interests. So Daddy, this one's for you. You showed me that sometimes we don't have all the time in the world and the time to do something is NOW!
