Good friend Rose, is Minerva, Goddess of Wisdom, Art and Science.  You can also see her daily at The Art League Gallery where she is busy running the place, a Science in itself.

Not really a Godess, but truly a saint

This is Saint Alice of Assisi.  Although technically not a Godess, she definitely is a Saint.  She raises Llamas, rescues animals in need and helps to build houses with Habitat for Humanity.

Oh The Joys of Dial Up

Well I am BACK!!!!!!!! and spending way too much time waiting for the dial up to post on my blog.
Now that my solo show paintings are finished and the show is actually open, I feel I have time to return to blogging again.  I have a few ideas knocking around in my head for some artwork I would like to create.  As always, more ideas than time!!!!  I am seriously going to devote the coming year to getting a decent portfolio together of sci fi illustration and try to finish my childrens book I started not too long ago, also. SOOOOOOO Stay Tuned for some more step by step here at Western View Studio.
