With the help of
Adobe Classroom in a Book I have been learning to use Illustrator. Although I am patient, I wish I could wake up and have all the knowledge in my head. It is a very helpful program to know as a designer of... well anything. While I have this on my computer, I finally successfully baked a loaf of white bread! It has a little too much yeast in it, so I will try again with less yeast and see how it turns out.

On Friday I saw Katherine Chang Liu speak for the Collage Society of America. She is a good speaker and very funny. I wish my mother was there because she is a big fan. My feelings toward Katherine is that I would really love to take a seminar with her. I feel her advice and guidance would be insightful.

As any artist will feel, if not once but several times in their lives, I am lost. If I work on several different projects I might be able to find my way.

This is a new blog for me. It has nothing to do with my cooking blog, which I swear I will update soon. This is a blog about what I am doing artistically. To keep a record of it so I can motivate myself to achieve more.

There might be some who say I do enough already. I paint, cook, sew and anything else I can physically achieve. My biggest problem is that I do all of these. I can't stay still long enough to finish one thing! This has been a problem of mine since I was a child. When I was home for Christmas I tried to find a picture of myself with my parent holding me. I found one. One photo with myself at about three making this angry little face that I was being held.

I am determined to finish some projects now.
