I write, and I paint. Is it possible to do both? Really?

Comic book visuals that captured the hearts of America, mystified me. My pencil crossed the blank page pulling lines to create yesteryear's super heroine, Wonder Woman. I don't remember coloring the pictures. It would have had to be crayon, so I just used my pencil. I sketch on location. Like my long time architect friend, Stephanie Bower. She takes groups all over Seattle, Italy, Hong Kong, Asia, and more. She Read More...

DiAnn Mills | Social Media and Writers

Hey Writers, are You afraid of Social Media? I’ve been in your shoes. In fact, I wore out several pairs called, “I can’t do social media.” They pinched my toes and hurt my feet.

Gail Ingis | Color For Interior Design

This is a subject that everyone asks about. In the last couple of weeks, my blogs addressed dark tones and color distribution. Color distribution is the industry phrase for the Law of Chromatic Distribution. In this blog, please note that the discussion is about color basics and its application.

Sharon Hamilton | Writing A Different Kind of Heroine

She likes to lead when she dances slow, and she’s Read More...

I’ve had the same style hair for a decade—short bob that the kids didn’t grab or bury in peanut butter. My clothing style was comfortable and hardy.
