The Last Post ...


Evolution of Butterflies
Odilon Redon

After today, I will not be doing any blog posts for a while so I can concentrate on what I love doing best - painting. I think we all reach a certain age in our lives where we find the things we thought were important, really were not important, and that we have been ignoring the things that are important.  God gave me a very small talent that I have been neglecting, but I have recently been given some opportunities to pursue my talent further.

Interacting with all of you have been a wonderful experience for me, and I hope to continue to do so in the future.

Enjoy your spring, everyone!

Cheers,

Jo

Wishing you all the best in any direction your heart and soul take you. You and your blog will be missed unbelievably!! Before I went in to check your blog this morning I was thinking that I'm adapting to less blogs then you did in the past and now here we have the last one. Big tears here Josie. I do understand that things change and you'll have more time for other things you are good at and love to do. Hoping you will come back at some point and let us know how life is treating you and wishing it will all be good news.

Good luck Jo. Your talent as a writer is well-established here and if your art can match your prowess in writing then a masterpiece is not far away.
Best wishes,
Phil

When you've had your fill of painting for a while, I sure hope you'll post some photos of your work!

I will miss your posts, but as you say, a time comes to do the things that are important to you. Enjoy Jo!

If God gave you such a lovely talent as painting, you should indeed pursue it further.
Good Luck and enjoy your painting adventure!

Good luck in your new endeavor, and perhaps in the future you can share some of your work and your progress with us.

You're not a primitive, but go, Granny, go!

You are wise to pursue what gives you happiness. I hope you do come back to your blog at some point. God gave you the gift of writing well, too. I have enjoyed sharing in your lovely view of the world.

That's cool...one day whenever you're blog will pop back up at the head of the list and I'll see it then. Paint well and remember to do it in a well ventilated space.

I hope it does not sound egoistic of me if I ask of you, that you might post a quick entry every now & then with a painting of yours for us to see!? :)

Enjoy working on your paintings & have fun using your talent to its fullest, dear!

I will miss your posts Jo, but I am delighted to hear you're pursuing your passion and utilizing the gift you've been given.

Create and enjoy! :)

Good for you! I know I have not been visiting you lately, but whenever I do, I always marvel at your talent in writing...so just in case you neglected to notice...besides the Blessings with your painting...the good Lord also blessed you with excellent communication and writing skills!!! You will be missed...but I support your creative endeavors 100%.

I have not been blogging as often myself...I have neglected several household projects and some redecorating endeavors. I figured once that was done, I could return to focus more clearly on my creative outlets...of which, I also enjoy writing and painting.

All the best to you Jo and I will check back occasionally to see what you are up to. I trust you will be blogging and showing us what you are painting. Cheers!
