Little introduction

Hi everyone,

Well here is my introduction.....I'm 31 years old and I like:

Art, painting, books, babyfeet, my boyfriend and little son, feeling of grass with my bare feet, drawing, spring, fall, Sex & the City, icecreams, France, my frieds, getting a card by mail, babykisses, thea with a magazine, reading in bed, dancing, Den Bosch, festivals, my two sisters, the sea, my parents, sleepovers, camping, x-mas, taking long walks in a forest, the sixties,the fifthies, the eighties, summer and winterevenings,a nice warm fireplace drinking red wine.

I work for 3 days as an Art therapist with disabled kids (autisme, ADHD, ect.) Besides that, I spend time with my son and boyfriend and study art at an Art School in Belgium. This year is my final year and it's going to be a busy one because I have to finish my work on time and I'm expecting my second baby in March :). So I already started painting and drawing. My inspiration: old photos I got from my grandparents.
The empty rooms and portraits on my Flickrsite are my first reaction on these photos.

I really like the topic "View from my window" and I'm really excited to get started. I'm thinking of using the old photo with the topic....maybe a view from my window into the past? I don't know yet but it will come together eventually.
Well I think that's enough......for now :))

I am now retired and spend my time training my two dogs, Floyd a German Shepherd and Daphne a black labrador, to compete in Working Trials which is similar to what the police do. I can liken it to 3 day eventing for horses as there are so many different elements to complete. I spend time in my 2 acre garden and drawing and painting which I took up when I retired.

Do hope that you all like what we've done so far. Bruce's picture of Paul, The Octopus, got me thinking and I wanted to keep the round window going, and could only think of a space ship! Can't wait to see what Jill adds to the book which I sent to her last week. The next book is almost ready to go!
Do hope that this group manages to keep going. I've loved being in the different Moly groups and seen what others can do.

Moly_x 79!

Hi moly_xers!

So about me:
I'm Bruce, student in high school, coffee lover, gym goer, art camp Assistant. Born and raised in a small country town (that sounds so boring compared to Scotland, Norway, Philippines, etc..HA) I am always finding little things in life to love, organic homemade pizza sauce,photography in my garage,Odawalla Juice, Russian friends...

Art has always been in my life, but being able to create it... I only started doing that a couple years ago. There is so much variety in art that I can never be satisfied drawing one thing and using only one medium. So my art is ever changing, pencil drawn trees to watercolor girls with huge afros. Pop art limes to Acrylic bird sculptures.
This is my first moly_x and I am very excited to get it going :p

Art enables us to find ourselves and lose ourselves at the same time.
