This is an amazing anniversary.  I started blogging 11
years ago today.  What's happened since then?  It's
changed my whole life that's all.  The chain of events
is too long to list here, but at the top of the list is
the artist friends I've made from all over the world,
who comment on my work, share their own work,
teach me techniques, tell me where to show, help
me get exhibitions.  So wonderful.

My blog got me on TV, on the Oprah Winfrey Show
via Skype, and media attention on several other shows.
It got me recognition in Canada's major newspaper.
That list is too long to share here.

But on top of that -- the blog helped my art to be
invited to travel to show in the Florence Biennale,
in Florence, in the Carousel du Louvre in Paris,
and many shows in New York City.  Plus I
had a piece go to the Netherlands without me, and
fly back to Canada to be sold here.

I am beyond grateful for the world of opportunities
and super friendships opened up for me through the
blog world.  Thank you to all of you.

Have a loving the blog world day.
