I'm a 72-year old professional artist who began blogging to explore the world apart from my art. I write about being kissed by wolves, making movies in the south of France, acting in commercials, my mother's escape from Russia, too many lipsticks, my paintings and my various other obsessions. Read me at http://www.apartfrommyart.com. My paintings have been featured nationally and internationally in galleries and publications. You can see my art work at http://www.sandrasallin.com.
