Gail and I are packing our suitcases, paintbrushes, papers and paints and moving to INSTAGRAM! We hope you will join us there. You can find us @ajourneybetweenfriends. It will look like this:



For those of you not familiar with Instagram, it is easy to acquire. You just download the free app through the app store or elsewhere online, pick a name and password for your account, use the search magnifying glass and type in “ajourneybetweenfriends”. Click “Follow” and you are done. Even if you sign up for Instagram, you do not have to post photos or do anything other than follow feeds you wish to. Gail and I are excited about the move. Our flowers will be posted there shortly. Thank you for being our cheerleaders. We appreciate it from the bottom of our hearts. xx



We are going to “Channel the Masters”! Yesiree, from Degas to van Gogh, and everything in between. Pollock, O’Keeffe, Monet, and many more. In no particular order, we will chose an artist and post a painting by them. Our challenge is to paint something in their style, in any medium we choose. There are absolutely no parameters. We can try to copy it, paint something entirely different, but in the style of the artist, or zero in on a particular part of the painting and recreate it. The sky’s the limit. Mixed media will probably come into play. Cutting from magazines to stamping, stencils, washi tape, you name it. Whoa boy, what have we gotten ourselves into now that we’ve put it out there??!! We are fired up and hope to post our first artist before Christmas.

Gail and I wish you a happy, healthy, creative start to the holiday season.
