I've been asked by George Miller, who is the blog-meister for The Art League in Alexandria, to answer a few questions about my experiences concerning developing and keeping an artist's blog. The Art League is a very large and active organization, with a big gallery, arts out-reach program, art supply store, and a fine art school. The school has thousands of students, and hundreds of teachers.

Nancy Freeman has a decades-long fascination with digital art which she supports by painting portraits and teaching various art subjects. Right now she devotes most of her creative time to digital art because it's so satisfying.
