I'm busy, busy, busy..... So thank-you BC for keeping these two groups going, as I forget.

I'm taking an art class here & there... mostly pastels w/ a friend who is a Great Teacher

I have more & more photos in exhibitions & I'm not only winning prizes/awards, but they are selling! My jewelry & Sun Catchers are also selling!

I'm preparing for a solo exhibition in August....

Mom is slowly declining, gets agitated, but I'm going once a week (more or less) to take her to the Doctor & grocery shopping... Her caretaker is working behind my back w/ my brother (whom I refuse to speak to) and has somehow convinced him she should have 3 days a week off..... So, I refuse to go and give her the extra day off...... My brother can pay a "professional" to cover the extra days, as he is "in-charge".....

So I have more time free to walk the gardens and take my photos.

Much of my work is @: http://kimberlyann-talbert.pixels.com

The most recent is usually on my FB page.....

That's good.... I use PIcasa 3, but it is no longer available/or supported, but it works

I HATE Photoshop (I have the pro version too)

But I saw something on Google that I liked: I think it was pixler....

but look at all the free ones.... they are not created equal......

Lorin | 5 comments Why do you hate Photoshop, just out of curiosity

Too much too busy, and mine always opens to the art option, not the photo editing... which I also find not so intuitive....

I prefer simple programs that are still artistic but not so geeky...

This group has become V*E*R*Y quiet ... We used to be such a vibrant and interactive group. Lately it seems I'm the only one still participating. Makes me sad.

Sorry BC, I 'm just not reading so much....

I'm busy w/ my art, and I now walk 2-4 times a day....

Nothing seems to be being published that I want to read....
