New header!!!!!

That's my mom standing up ,her sisters mary, and helen! The girls all rode horses and the guys around are the trainers and stable hands. The girls all were accomplished in dressage, sulky carts, english, sidesaddle, and my mom loved the western and pony tricks! They performed in many National horseshows all over the US. I have a box of news articles and 8x10 photos of them on their horses! The years when they were lucky enough to have the stables was when Gramps(their dad) was in the construction business(mid 1800-1930) and specialized in highways. He paved all the first streets on the island of Hawaii. He made a fortune 3 times . He lost it all in the late 30's.
That's another story!!!!

My FIRST ever published piece in Somerset Studio .It was several years ago for a "girlfriends " challenge!
Atc (early years!!!!)
Atc(early years)
Atc.......VERY early years! Artchix was my very first Yahoo group(4-5 years ago). I was just discovering the fun of atcs and alteredart. I fell in love with the charming images and the friendliness of the group. The moderators "walked me " through most of all the data stufffffffffff, cause I was brand new at the computer! No one ever YELLED at me! I learned so much from the artists there and always appreciated their support and enthusiasm for my creations! This art represents "The early years" and my first publication!!!!!
Thanks Helga and all the other artchix!
I STILL like to play there!!!!!
