Celebrate!

6x6" oil on masonite sold
I just realized that March 11th is the one year birthday of my blog! A Blogaversary of sorts.
Its a special day for me. My son suggested last year that I start with a cupcake - to celebrate...so year 2 will start the same way.
Never did I imagine-one year ago- all that would come from this. My blog started as a way to stay committed to a daily disipline of painting, to make myself accountable so I could grow as an artist and get my groove on -so to speak.
Now, Ive done that and sooo much more. The power of the internet amazes me everyday. Not since leaving RISD have I had this community of artists to support me,to bounce ideas off of, to learn from, to commiserate with, to be INSPIRED by. It is truly amazing. There has been so much learning and growing,opportunities and challenges too. And -OH MY GOSH- there are a whole bunch of you who get my paintings in your mailbox everyday! How cool is that? Its like you all come over to my (imaginary internet)studio for a cup of coffee and some art everyday...talk about creative inspiration! THAT is it! **thank you! thank you! **
My little paintings are all over the country now - in the homes of all the lovely people who have enjoyed them enough to purchase one - there are even several overseas!! Never did I imagine that. **thank you, thank you!**
There IS beauty in this world, thanks for sharing with me. namaste.

Hi Debbie,
Congratulations on your anniversary, that's a lot of paintings and a lot of fun-work. I love your cup cakes they look good enough to eat.
Carry on the good 'work'

Congratulations Debbie.
I agree wholeheartedly with yuo observations about blogging and the internet.
I thought of you today when I was at the beach with my baby nephews. Everywhere I looked there was a Debbie Miller painting!
