OK I don’t normally do this but I’m FED UP!! I’m going to rant and rave here about California/USA unemployment idiocy. Think about this!

America is always helping people……..OUTSIDE ITS OWN COUNTRY……. well how about within its own Country? Unemployment has decided to completely STOP any file extensions THIS MONTH. Do they have any idea what this will do with the crime and suicide rate?  Not to mention how many families will now be homeless?






Someone told me they overheard people saying…….

~ “If I don’t get an unemployment check, I can’t pay my rent. It’s bad enough I can’t eat.”
~ “Looks like my family and I will be living in a tent.”
~ “I suppose you want me to rob a bank?”
~ “How am I supposed to interview for a job when I will no longer have anywhere to shower and get ready for an interview.”


AMERICA allows these companies to outsource jobs to other countries. IT SHOULD BE ILLEGAL! We have plenty of people within the USA that are willing to work, even at a low cost, just to live. SHAME on the companies that OUTSOURCE and shame on America for allowing it.

We are always voting on new laws….. Same-sex marriage, what goes in our food, etc., etc., etc., well how about voting a new law “COMPANIES CANNOT OUTSOURCE JOBS”. You wouldn’t even have to guess on how that law would pass.

AMERICA needs to STOP helping people outside our own Country and START focusing on helping people within its own.

Scarlett Johansson Sketch by Cosima Cannizzaro

My first sketch via a magazine print.  The hardest thing for me was the nose.  It was very relaxing doing this piece, not to mention, gratifying.  I’m ready to do some more Smile

Sicilian Girl (My First Pencil Sketch)

I read a book that had my middle name/Grandmother’s name within it.  I took some of the pages out of that book that contained words that would signify me or my art and added it to this piece.  I circled the words I wanted to stand out.  This is my first pencil sketch.  Totally enjoyed doing it and really loved how it came out.  I’m looking forward to doing more pencil sketches and becoming better at it.
