REFLECTIONS: THANK YOU!

March 28, 2014 Hello Friday! The end of March is pretty much around the corner. I just want to say to all the followers of Esquisses a very big THANK YOU! Esquisses has reach a total of 104 followers! I meant to do this when it reached 100, but I didn’t get to do that earlier so I’m making up for it. A year ago, I wanted to make a blog all about art, the illustration, the sculpture, photography, etc, etc. I’m still going strong with it and there will be more! It’s not easy getting this all together. I’m doing this all by myself. Sometimes I think maybe I’m doing too much, with my day job, working on three, yes, three art projects, it feels like I’m being pulled in all directions! You know what I like the most? The way you guys respond to these posts. It shows that all the hard work was worth it. I have so many things that I want for Esquisses…..my brain is just swimming with ideas. I …
