Hello to any friends I may still have.  I am sorry to write that I have not been doing any drawing for quite some time now.  Since retiring, my life has no pattern to it and certain activities have suffered because of it (like drawing).  I love retirement though.  Emotionally, mentally and physically I am doing so much better which is maybe another reason I'm not drawing.  Drawing has always been an escape or release for me and now I don't need those, but I do want to return to it some day soon and maybe even expand.

I do check in here most days and am so impressed with the many artists' works I see.  Wow!  

I hope you are all doing well.  'Til next time...Heart 


Joilieder's Profile Picture
Carol Gillie
United States
I am a classically trained musician (bassoon) who recently retired after working as a secretary for a police department after 22 years. Yay!!! Love retirement!

I love to draw, especially portraits, using various pencils. I stopped drawing for years and just got back into it because well, first, because my sister died in Nov 2010 and then because I discovered Adam Lambert's band and Tommy Joe Ratliff in December '10. Tommy has the perfect face to draw.

I also love to read, mainly British cozy mysteries, have two kitty cats and hope to retire to southwestern England in a few years. (Yes, I'm that old.)

That's about it for now.

Current Residence: Flint, Michigan, USA
Favourite genre of music: Classical, Symphony Orchestras
