I stopped doing my art for several years. I decided to fall for the "get a real job". Five years ago, my husband past away, leaving me widowed at age 33. I was feeling a little sad one day and found myself flipping through the channels.
I heard about the children in Darfur and really felt the urge to do something. I had no money to donate. But, my son, who is now seven, told me I should paint. I am not sure why he said it or even how he knew I loved to paint at one time. I did. And this is the picture that came from that experience.
I use to be a business/employment servinces coach, and I had helped many people accomplish their dreams. Now, I have been in the process of setting up my own studio and opened on March 1. I must tell you, that this website has been a great source of inspiration for me. My confidence has grown and I know that my skill will evolve as I do. Thank you Bob!
