“Articles” can be deceiving. When I think of an article, I first imagine the written word. Someone’s opinion, world news or human interest.

I also imagine an article of clothing. Fashion, creativity. Fun with patterns and colors that don’t match.

But I have a surprise hidden in my “Articles” category.

Not many people would even think of looking because reading an article can be drudgery, tiring.

Behind my “Articles” lie samples of my paintings. Layers of exuberant color.
Watercolor, but not the pale kind. Watercolor that is vivid and subject matter that is varied.

I wanted to let you know. Just in case you enjoy art. Or, on impulse, might consider a new observation, from someone with fifty-two years of study and experience.

Thank You,

art is poetry in motion. Often, I've looked and penciled my own thoughts.

It is really too bad AD doesn't have art, illustration, and music sections. I've been watching the Antiques Roadshow and find that an old painting is usually far more valuable than an old book.

Wow. You are a poet AND an artist. I am impressed. Both genres complement each other. Thank you, Janet. Love and peace. Regis

art reflects life and no doubt your paintings are vibrant with it ...

Janet, There is a very enhanced poetic touch to all of your paintings. Your paintings are words and stories for my mind. Keep those articles coming...

Articles are "things"....individual ARTICLES/ITEMS (at least that's what I think of!!!!)....and your paintings are absolutely extraordinary "THINGS" and beautiful "ARTICLES".....thanks for pointing the way to those who would perhaps not think to look there for your work.
