My First Post

My new sweet, sweet, and talented friends.
Karin Jurick workshop at Hilton Head Island 2011

My first post.... finally I am blogging. I have named my blog "Mini" Moments. I have been a portrait artist for twelve years now and I love it. Most of my subjects are of children. I always think of capturing a child in that moment of time. A picture can do that, we say. But, putting that moment in time into paint...nothing like it. When I think back on moments of my life - they are made of special moments...many moments. Some are small and some big but they are just that...moments.
I am looking forward to sharing special "mini" moments (mini portraits) of my day and perhaps putting a smile on your face as you relate to one that reminds you of a special time in your life.

A very big thanks to a very giving woman who just shared with a group of we artists the beauty of using many colors, the richness of them, the importance of using them. Karin Jurick poured her heart and soul into sharing of her talent with 19 of us at her workshop in Hilton Head, S.C. this past week. I will be eternally grateful. Thanks Karin.
