Day One

Just learning about blogging but here goes.  This may be repeated but if it is I'll try to correct that later:

After working most of my life and raising a couple of beautiful daughter, I retired. One thing I miss about the work is the organizational schedule -- always knowing where you had to be and when. I began setting goals and making a schedule. Art had always been an inspiration in my life but I never seemed to have enough time. Now I do. I recently hears of a group of artists who are challenging themselves towards progress and perseverance by painting a picture each day and selling it for a very reasonable amount with 10 percent going to a charity. I wanted to join this challenge; however because I take care of my 90 year old mother I may not be able to paint every day. I decided to go for one painting a week for 50 weeks. Each painting will be priced for $50 and from each painting sold I will contribute $5.00 to the Taylor Senior Citizens Center in Taylor, Alabama. This Center is a place where senior citizens come together for fellowship, crafts, meals and other entertainment. To learn more about this challenge, please visit or

This is my first picture.
