Hahaha, yes an 'Empath' I tend to feel things and and express deeply.The portraits have secret hidden meanings that only the subjects are aware of.

I can't watch utube as only on small wifi and it chews up avi like it has never had a drink..lol...When I get onto some cable which I shall soon I shall be free to explore....In a way not having it keeps me in the art zone, as the internet can be a huge distraction. Soo much to see and I bet your utube is awesome Shelly....

Emmmm!!! how are you? Has love taken you to other shores?.....funny how you just popped up, thought I saw you in a photo with some guy recently. I am loving teaching atm the art of Zentangle, but with my own twist. I find teachers come to my class for inspiration, and they refer all their own students too, thank god. Hope your having a ball, Cheers, Shelley x x x

Hahaha....How did you guess?...My love and passion for art grows more deeply everyday as I fly off to distant lands where my Spirit leads...That definitely wasn't me in any photo with some guy....What guy>>LOL??...Joking!! ,Fantastic that you are ripping it up with your teaching....Would love if you were closer and slip into your artstream for a no doubt amazing experience. Super busy which is great and soo love your Zentangle. I have been doing some inking and totally loving that as I had a lot of it left over from airbrushing days....Fun it all is and soo much to learn. People are always asking me is I teach...and I figure when mum is better I would love to get a big shed somewhere near the ocean, where i can paint and teach as I love the human interaction. There is none when painting, must me and all my gear which is 6 days a week..lol..Having a ball and sounds like you are too......Cheers to you to Shelly.....Em

I have recently embraced the art of doodling again in a big way using the elegant art form of Zentangle, and have begun teaching this in Australia as an extension of my drawing class initiatives.
