Not *my* birthday but my blog's birthday! It was one year ago today that I started this blog. I thought it would be fun to have a blog for my art endeavors but I had no idea just how much fun it would be to keep a blog. And rewarding. And motivating. I have so enjoyed keeping up with the artists' blogging community. I know that having the 'self-imposed' responsibility to post new work has been extremely motivating for me to keep going, making new works, trying new ways of working, and keeping a critical eye on my progress. Another benefit, of course, is the positive and encouraging feedback you all so graciously leave on my posts and there is nothing more motivating than that!
