We were told That computers were going to make life much easier for the world, but I've found them to be work demanding and frustration building! However, I'm getting over it (I hope) as I learn more.
The trouble is that many of us who use computers today were brought up in a non - computer age and our brains don't seem to work quite adequately when it comes to computer thinking. I'm very fortunate – I have a 15 year old grandson, Samuel, who is usually able to straighten me out.
You may be wondering why I am talking about this? Well, over the last week or two (attempting to speed up my computer and make Final Cut Pro X, a film editing program work properly), a friend and I decided to rebuild my computer and in the process I lost my emails, addresses, etc.
Many people have been receiving my blogs and have written to me asking questions about DVDs, painting classes, materials, etc, so this is really just an attempt to tell you that if you have written, and have not received a reply, I do apologise and ask if you would just write again please but on a different email address: firstname.lastname@example.org Thanks!
I've found this to have been a very busy year. With filming and editing, taking classes (even in Australia this year!) and of course my own painting and framing, time seems to have flown.
Despite all that, I've been aiming at doing a blog every month but, as in the past, I've only managed three this year, and that's counting this one!! However, the New Year is coming. I'm certainly not going to be making New Year resolutions – but I will aim to do better.
In the meantime my best wishes for a good holiday period over Christmas and the New Year and hopefully, a prosperous and fulfilling painting time next year.
