post 52 and closing



 
So this is it. Blog post number 52.The end. Or the closing of a chapter, I really don’t know at this point. I kept my commitment to myself and I’m happy for that.

I like to think I’ve learned this past year. How much is difficult to determine.Yet I know I’ve learned a lot about what I can and cannot do. What my strengths are and my weaknesses. I’m not sure if I have the personality or talent to become professional in either writing or painting-certainly not painting, but I do know without a doubt that I have the determination to stick with it and improve. One effort in drawing or writing improves the other and at this point I can’t imagine not doing either one.



This past week I received also a pleasant surprise and one that befits the closure of this blog. Back in the beginning of the year I sent a mail art card to a small gallery asking for submissions for an exhibit.

 The exhibit was held in November. They received entries from around the world. Not a lot of entries but over a hundred. I received in the mail a brochure with the name of entrants and a mail art card submitted by a young girl.

Thank you Claire Brown for your wonderful drawing of martians, and thank you Laura Bucci for setting up the event. It was fun to participate.


With this blog I have a record of my attempts and endeavours. 2013 was a good year.
