I have memories of these people from when I was a very small child. They were friends of my grandmother, Ada Spears, named Jimmy and Dorothy. They both passed long ago and I don't believe they had children or I would try to find them to give them this great picture. Look at Dorothy's curls..........love them.

The art has suffered as I am slowly maneuvering myself into spring. I'm having trouble seeing it as a new beginning just yet, but I'm sure I will (before winter begins again anyway). My little dog has provided me considerable entertainment and a lot of comfort as changes in my life have caused me pain.
One thing little Bella has forced me to do is to really look closely at my neighborhood. I've been walking (several times a day) through the streets and alleys and have gleaned several pounds of previously useful items (including even a canvas sitting on top of a garbage can) and I plan to work on a new set of pieces I'm going to call "Alley Art" and it will consist largely of beat up bottle caps and miscellaneous little pieces of hardware that defy description. I've also come to enjoy the area I live as the quaint little neighborhood it is.
I also got a new camera...........a spendy little Nikon. Once I figure out how to use the thing I'm hoping my posts will look a whole lot more professional...
