Because Art Should be Play and Not Work

Whatever happenedd to 2016?

I have been absent for awhile. Life just got in the way. I have been making art all along, so in the next few weeks I will get you caught up on all the new paintings. I think this week I will start with the Babushkas. First up is "Babushka on a Bicycle".

She looks very determined doesn't she and I love the baby babushka with her kite!

She was so much fun to make that another babushka seemed to be order. I named this next one "Babushka Tiptoes through the Tulips" for obvious reasons.

I love the baby babushka. I think there are more babushkas in my future!

So nice to see your art work again. I love your style. It is so distinct. If I went to a gallery, I would immediately know which one was a Janet Ghio.

I add an 'amen" to the above comments. Missed your postings and hope we can look forward to more this year.
Your "babuska" series is one I can relate to. The women in my mother's family wore babuska's to church and my maternal grandmother
Was called "Babushka". While I have only a vague remembrance of her, a smile was my reaction to your wonderful drawings, at that
