If you mean what projects am I starting in the hope of someday completing...here's the list.
1. I hauled out a sweater I have been knitting and looked at it....put it away.
2. I started working on some fabric postcards, but then I got a phone call from a friend.
3. Made lunch
4. Went for a walk -- about 4 miles-- with a friend
5. Came home did a a Sudoko puzzle...but realized I made a mistake somewhere and need to erase and start over
6. Decided to put the puzzle away and read
7. read a bit then dozed off
8. woke up when dog jumped on me.
9. Read a little more to finish the chapter that I fell asleep reading
10. Decided to check my e-mails
11. Made a list of all that I didn't do today...oh well, there's aways tomorrrow
the few I get from people I don't know are great to get ... but don't give up because you don't get
comments every day .. sometimes folks just can't think of anything to say other then "good" "great" or " I like this one" and don't think it's enough to pass it on to ya."

Been along time between blogs---but here's a new Year and I feel it's going be a special one. I'm glad I made it this far, still painting and learning new creative ways to express myself.
Here is my latest painting, "Three Old Queens, A House, A Lady and An Artist" which is in the process of my new wave of thoughts that say, "Hey, your work can be what you want---bigger and better----just do what you love the most....make an assemblage with the 8" by 10" canvas." It amazes me that I haven't been doing this for years. No, I have managed to wait to be 72 and then it dawns on me---well, that's the way the ball bounces and was supposed to, for me. I had just gotten sick of how bulling and huffing and puffing, reaching, moving and in general exhausting myself to paint larger. This old Queen Ann house is in Manytowns, USA, I know, but really this particular one is in Auburn Maine where I grew up. The Queen is a youthful look at an old Queen and the "me" (Queen of My Life) is there in every brushstroke and equal amounts of look/thinking . Above, also you see a work completed, called "Honk" with loads of symbolism created in the assemblage.
I'll be blogging regularly as I can make it---and show the progress of The Three Queens plus other looks into the Ways of Winna (how my work is signed.)
