How about Double Date, Just Chatting or Apple a Day and Add Few Pears.
Did I get up too early or should I go get that second cut of coffee?

Together they host a blog talk radio program called Artists Helping Artists which airs on your computer live on Thursday at noon EST and can be downloaded for future listening through I Tunes. The show's focus is to help artists advance their careers and also to educate them on how to sell their artwork online.
Well, I come up short with all the superlatives I need to express how much I enjoyed this workshop and being in the presence of these VERY GENEROUS ladies with 23 new artist friends.
Now can you believe that after doing demos and assisting artists each day, Leslie and Dreama cooked gourmet meals for all the artists. Each night the dinners were hosted by Leslie's brother Gary and his wife Aileen in their beautiful Atlanta home. How special and welcomed did we feel.
And then on Friday night, we had a fireside chat like nothing I have ever experienced at an artist workshop. Each artist was given center stage to express their hopes and dreams for the direction of their art career.
Now, I must give a shout out of thanks to the charming and talented Kathy Cousart who was so kind to take notes for me on the first day when I could not travel to Atlanta, due to my father's health concerns and to Kelley MacDonald daily painter extrordinare and Sandra Baggette a painterly colorist and Jerry Stocks, my copilots through Atlanta's rush hour traffic. Artists helping artists....hey, that's what it was all about.
