First off, I am glad that so many of you think that there will be a polar shift and the world will be full of peace-lovin' hippies come 12/21/2012. Also, none of you are "ascared", which is awesome. Don't know what I am talking about? Here is the poll: peggymintun.deviantart.com/jou…Why do you do what you do??
Life is interesting. I am having one of those weekends where I am thinking of the recent past and have a feeling that there is going to be some changes coming up for me: some within my control and some not; some involving me and some involving people close to me.
I have to tell you, I am a bit apprehensive about it all.
But, part of that is thinking about my art and where I need to take it, which brings up the why. Why do you do what you do?
I have been painting for many, many years. My style has gone through a lot of changes...plus I have learned a great deal. Especially during my time here on dA. All in all, painting makes me happy. It helps me get away from life and is a way to express myself.
Have you tried it out yet? It is kind of cool once you get the hang of it. Tip:
You can only have 18 images per gallery. If you miss that fact and add more, it just deletes everything you added. My Portfolio

I am working on some stuff for the abstract club. I also made a Twitter account for the club to add some informative links. Planning a contest for the club, as well!
Well, I thought I may take a few months off of from exhibiting, but a new opportunity came up. Yay! I do want to start arranging shows for later on in the year...closer to the holidays. We'll see what happens with that, too.McGraw Hill - solo
I was asked to exhibit my work at McGraw Hill here in Columbus. The exhibit will be up for two months - July/August. I don't believe it is open to the public...although, I do not have all of the details yet. It is just nice to keep the work out there and being seen, if even for a select audience. I want to get a couple of larger pieces ready for this show. Yeah, I have plenty of work, but I like to have new stuff to hang. Hopefully I will be permitted to take photos of the installation!
Still calling all poets...Deadline Extended: July 15th
I mentioned in a couple journals ago that I am planning on publishing a book of my watercolor works very soon. I would like to add some poetry to the book, so I am asking people (poets and wanna-be poets) to choose a work from my WCE or H20 Gallery and write a poem about it. If I like it, I will add it along side the artwork and give you full credit for the writing. This is just something that I am putting together for fun and as a sort of gallery book. I am sure that some poetry along the way will be a wonderful addition to my work.
So far, I have a couple of poems by nosedive
