I’m Free…..

It Seems to Me…

Have you ever been on a board.  I’ve been on the  boards of a writer’s group, the condo association, and art leagues.  Usually, I would say that it’s well worth your while. After all, it’s good to give back to the groups that support your work.  HOWEVER, what’s with all the in-fighting? What’s with the, “We’ve always done it this way?”

I just retired from the last of the boards that I’ve been on and I feel liberated.  I’m not one who enjoys confrontation, so it is such a relief. to be free of it, to wake up today and not have to worry about walking on eggshells.  Yes. It feels good.  On to other pursuits.

On the Art front…

I’m taking a collage class on line … It is wonderful, but challenging since I don’t like sticky fingers.  Other that that, I’m having fun with it.  Here’s a recent piece. Whew!!!  All those little pieces of paper…

The Boys

The boys are doing well and send their best.

Have a great day.  Just wanted to touch base.  It’s Friday. Do something super on the weekend.

    Glad to hear from you! I agree about serving on boards, small boards always seemed most resistant to change. Paint more and pet more!

    Don’t get me started on boards…so happy to no longer be on any. Good for you being done with it. I love all your bright colors in the collage and the subject. We have lots of art with trees in it. The on-line course sounds great. The boys are so precious. Glad you included them in the post. Hope to see you back for Sunday Selfies.

    I’m glad to see things are good for you and the boys! Love the new piece.

  4. YAY for you! I have never been on a board but I DO “get it”………there is politics everywhere and believe me I have lived my share (and the backstabbing that often goes along with it). Loved seeing the boys and love that you are taking a class!

    We hear you about serving on boards and committees. Left to my own devices, I’d rather not ever have to do so! That collage is terrific, and we are glad Bugsy and Knuckles are doing well. Hugs!
