First, I want to apologize to anyone who posted a comment on the previous post of this painting. Yesterday by accident it was deleted and I found out it cannot be retrieved. I want to thank Elizabeth and Carol for the awards given, they were appreciated.
The past few weeks have been a blur, I was laid off from the small manufacturing company that I worked for. It did not totally suprise me, since Christmas the backlog of orders had been steadily dwindling. I have worked in manufacturing most of my adult life, starting as a Mechanical Draftsperson but I've also done Inspection, Inside Sales and Estimating to name a few. The company I worked for came from our previous employer, when the company was sold and moved out of state three of the guys started their own business. There were eight of us total and it was hard physical work but an interesting experience. But it is time to make some major life changes, I am taking a certification class and than maybe go back to school. Right now I am leaning towards going back to school which is a little daunting at this age. I have been out getting a physical and running around with paperwork, you know how it goes. So life is a little up in the air and after yesterdays accident with the post I think I need to take a step back for a bit. But I am asking you to hang in there with me while I go through this transition period. I love meeting all the new people and seeing the art created. I look forward to everyones new posts and am going to try to hang on to this. Art is my passion and anyone who knows me can tell you I love it!
