For the past year I have been stitching my own Handpainted Needlepoint Designs, and it wasn't enough.  Enough what?  Enough creativity, all though stitching with all the exotic threads, floss, braids, and ribbons is very challenging and creative.  But I asked myself is it enough when my years are getting numbered, and time getting shorter.  I want more...YES even in our later years we can still want MORE!
Now, I'm teaching young children and stitching on the side.  I'm drawing up lessons, and trying to convey to children who play with XBox, have their lives filled with so much ? with little free play time and are not trained in art at school.  I love these children, they are enthusiastic, delightful, and like puppies untrained.  That said, they catch on so fast to some things, and don't grasp others.  The enthusiasim of children is what I was missing in life.  I'm going to post some drawings, and I apologize for the reproduction quality.  I used a good camera, but my old computer doesn't function well, and the new Computer is seizing up and back with the Geek Squad at Best Buy!  I'm really pissed off at computers, salesmen, and Geek Squads right now.  That said I still have my pencils, hands, talent, and some children who want to learn.  The young girls want to draw animals, the boys want to draw animals and Dinosaurs, and older girls want to draw faces and eyes.   My drawing lessons will cover the entire spectrum.  I decided to post the new art so you don't think I'm dead....Haha that's a joke!
