BlueBonnets – It’s a Texas Thing!

Until I read an article about the tradition of bluebonnet pictures in Texas, I was not even remotely seeking out bluebonnets.

NanoWrimo and Me.

  Ever since I was old enough to read (perhaps even before that) I was writing stories. A happy companion to my drawings and paintings, writing let me create characters and situations that explored the worlds I loved to create. Folders upon folders of ideas and sketches and maps and floor plans, accompanied by character… Continue reading NanoWrimo and Me.
