I attempted to start the Facebook Challenge today.
Day 1.  I have been asked to post three paintings
a day on Facebook for five days.  I started today
with my Before The Dance series, which is what
I was consumed with when I started blogging in
February 2008.

They were paintings to capture people on the
edge of growing up -- waiting to go out on an
important date to a dance.  By the way, I still
own all of these, and if you'd be interested in
buying one, just write me at

Thank you again to my Facebook promoters:
Flora Doehler, Kim Rempel and Janet Vanderhoof.
I nominate Marcia LaBelle today.  Her
drawings and paintings are exceptional.  I
am always in awe of her work.

Have an honouring-your-art-friends day.

Hi Laurel,

Thank you! Yes it is amazing how work changes over time. I'm so glad you're doing the 30 paintings. So incredible!
