My Everyday Artist

Do you ever wonder when women are on the computer involved in their blogging world, what their husbands may be thinking or even doing during that time? Some husbands have their own blogs. Most of them I suggest are hard at work, or perhaps they're in the middle of a hobby of their own.
That's the case for us in our world.
My husband is an artist. (Artist: one who is skilled in any of the fine arts).
Although he isn't an artist for his full day-time job, he does however do it on the side here at home....usually when I'm blogging.
Over time I have had the great pleasure of seeing him challenge himself towards improving the qualities of his work. He has never been to college per say, but he excels in educating himself on different techniques and methods.
I'm taking this time to brag about my husband a little and hopefully bless you with some of his finished projects. I'm not the pro so I can't tell you what techniques and tools he used, usually black charcoal pencils, but I can at least tell you what they are.
I am very proud of you Joe on your finished accomplishments and I look forward to seeing what your unique talents will soon create.

  4. Wow! Great work! I like to think of my blog as a creative outlet for me! It's free, right at home and I love the community in it! lol
