I love horses and animals also. I have three dogs now, Monty and Australian terrier, Mille a topy fox terrier and Marley a toy poodle. I take time brushing them and showing love every morning. They are my children now. I told Ray we should have a famity photo with them..LOL, he was not impressed. xx

Gosh my spelling. Terrible. Mille is a toy fox terrier, and family photo is what I meant. xx

Oh, sweet dear friend, Crystal Mary!! How kind of you to come around to visit my place!! Yes!!
I am truly impressed by your presence. I highly appreciate your point of views, sweetheart.
This lady artist is our neighbour.
She sells her Art Gallery. It is rather expensive, but worthwhile.
I plan to buy one of her beautiful oil paintings. I like them!! I understand that not too many folks nowadays can paint the way my dear Swiss grandfather did. He was born around the 1880's in the 19th Century in Vevey, Switzerland. He studied at the School of Art in Brera, Milano, Italy in Europe. My grandfather spoke French and Italian as well. He was influenced by the European traditions in his time and place of birth. Grandpa painted portraits and realism inspired in the Renaissance Art. Unfortunately, he passed away too soon in life. Grandpa was around 48 years of age. He painted without a mask. I think, inhaling the odor of the paint caused him a lethal disease in his liver. My dear mom was only 2 years old at that time. My grandfather's death was a real tragedy in my grandmother's life and in my mom's as well. My grandfather was the one who supported his family. Not too many women used to work outside the home back then. It was seeing as something really bad in the society that they lived in. Then, my Italian grandmom was left in poverty and isolation. My mom was raised by her Genovese (Northern Italian) grandparents, the parents of her mom, my grandmom. You see, all my European grandparents were Immigrants to South America. Europe was not in good shape back in the 19th Century after wars, overpopulation and poverty due to bad economies. I got really tired of those things!! I was the first Immigrant in North America, and I did it all by myself in my 20's. I planted my good genes there with my daughter and her offsprings, my grandchildren. I've never liked the underdevelopment and corruption in South American countries at all. Crystal Mary, I think I inherited the gentle artistic spirit of my Swiss grandfather, the father of my mom. I feel I am an Artist, but in a different way than my grandfather. I highly appreciate Art and Music. I compose poetry, lyrics and other things, which are also expressions of Art. I am so grateful that you have come around to visit my little place in Cyberland. I am still in much pain due to the neuralgia in my face. Maybe, it is due to my bad tooth that should be removed as soon as possible. I got to see a good Dentist after all. I am scared of Physicians and Dentists! They've caused me pain.
Thank you so much, Crystal Mary to take your precious time to read and write your wise evaluations!!
Io ti voglio benne, cara amici!!
Amore di Starry.
