I spent quality time in 2015 making art. I didn't make it to sell it. I just made it for fun and to grow as an artist. I'm involved with the same art group this year and enjoying my journey thus far. Here are some of my favorite creations from last year.

I created blog posts for RVT.com until recently. I wrote those posts for pay. It was a good discipline to create a new post every week for three years! And it was great to get paid for my work. (I will release a book based on the RVT.com posts from the past three years - over 150 of them - this spring (2016) called "Hit It! The Road That Is." So stay tuned.)
At the moment, I am writing a TV series called "Utopia." The theme of the series is: "Prejudice is everywhere." Here's the story-line.
"It's 1948. World War II is over. Servicemen have returned home to rebuild their lives. A wealthy land developer named Henry Blackstock decides to build a community of many races where people can live in harmony. He calls his community "Utopia."
So as you can see, my creative life is in full swing. When John and I began our "California Odyssey" over seven years ago, my dream was to live in a community that I would love and to be a full-time writer and doggie mom. Dream fulfilled for certain! (If you haven't read about our journey, you can still find my book about it on Amazon - "This Restless Life: A Dream Chased Through California Parks in an RV."
What kind of fun things are you doing at the moment? I look forward to hearing from you!
