Golly....The most wonderful bloggers keep stopping by and saying hello this week. I'm pleased to welcome 20th Century Woman, who turns out to be an artist--currently studying painting but in her words, "I don’t think of myself as a painter. I went to art school when I was 50, and I majored in printmaking." Art school! Major!
She has links to other artists, too--like her community college painting teacher, Lorna Libert, whom 20th CW describes as "a free spirit, spontaneous, cheerful, friendly, intelligent and pretty." All of that?!
I've gone to many different art CLASSES--the University of Minnesota (metal sculpture), the Minneapolis College of Art & Design (painting), Art Students League in NYC (anatomical drawing), the University of Iowa (watercolor), Washington Studio School (figure sculpting), Gallaudet University (hand building ceramics), the Torpedo Factory (watercolor again) but unlike 20th CW I've never signed up and picked a major. What a great idea!
I'm feeling a great rush of inspiration here. Art has saved my bacon many times, and I'm going back to it. Grandma Moses started painting when she was 74. Do you think she ever wondered what the hey to do with herself when her eyesight got too wobbly for her embroidering?
But enough about me. Welcome, Ms. 20th Century Woman! You've come bearing great gifts!!
