Introduction

Posted by Lidya Endzo Kun iLLa 0 comments
Welcome to my blog. My (blogging) name is Jewel and I hope you will enjoy reading about my adventures. I am a keen amateur artist and I will be exhibiting at shows, setting up a website and doing arty voluntary work. Anyone can read this, so I will not be mentioning any names, and will keep any mention of my family to a minimum. There should hopefully still be plenty of interesting things to write about.

I am a member of a local art group and I have been busy setting up a website for some of the members, including myself. It has taken most of this year, and I have had to have quite a bit of help from my better half, but I am now close to completing it.

I am keeping this introductory posting short, and will sign off for now, but I hope you will join me again soon.

Bye for now

Jewel

A Farewell to Spring

Posted by Lidya Endzo Kun iLLa 0 comments

The Brooklyn Botancial Gardens is a favorite place for me during all seasons, even winter. This photo was taken by my friend, Paul. As some of you know, because I grew up in Rockaway by the beach and baked myself every summer, sometimes intensified with a reflector, I can't be in the sun at all. To make the best of it, I have a collection of an artsy collection of umbrellas, this one Monet's "Waterlilies."

New site for your writing:

A former student, Camerone Thurson, emailed me that The Whistling Fire is looking for submissions. It is gaining in its literary respect and while they do not pay or submissions it is a growing literary website which may help attract quality eyeballs and potential admirers to your work. They will also include your personal website link. http://whistlingfire.com She said the editors are a joy to work with.
