It has been two years since I first entertained the thought of sharing my thoughts on painting in a blog. It took me 30 years to give art and the creative process a large enough priority in my life that I could even entertain the thought. Today, it seems, it has all come together and it feels right. So here goes.......
I always thought I loved art, and painted in high school and college. Then, I took a 30 year break while working and raising a daughter. I did putter around with it some, until several years ago. Then I retired. And began to paint, really paint. I thought it would be a great hobby, but soon found out that there is no such thing as an art "hobby" for me. Now, it is all or nothing. I can't seem to get tired or bored with it! After putting some real miles on the brushes, I am just starting to feel I can begin to do what I want with the process, and the world of painting has opened up for me. Exciting and exhilarating and daunting. The time is right. I look forward to sharing my experiences and thoughts with you.
