A dear friend of mine challenged me to draw each day, developing techniques and workmanship for creating art. His blog is nihil sine linea, and I have always enjoyed watching him create and produce fine art. I've always envied those men and women, the artists that could create fantastic scenes of life or imagination to share with the world. My favorite artists have been those who create unique pictures, framed in new ways. Vincent van Gogh, Claude Monet, DaVinci, Raphael, Michelangelo and many others convey without words the beauty and majesty of the world that surrounds us and the life therein. So I will post the foray into the art world here and see what comes of it. If you wish - please comment. I enjoy feedback.
