I can just see myself sitting under on of the trees, being absorbed by the water view and feeling at peace with my world. This painting was a lesson in finding and laying in the masses, putting in the light and finally adding a just a few details (had to restrain myself and not get too fussy). How many times I have read that yet with a some help from a great local artist Bill McCoy, it all came together. Thanks Bill.
After 60+ years, I have finally discovered my passion! I love painting as the process totally absorbs me and the results surprise me! As a retired nurse, wife, mother and now grandmother, painting affords me an opportunity to express myself in a total different manner. A whole new world has opened to me and I am even more aware of how beautiful and precious life is. I am reading and painting every day and I have been fortunate to have so many people help me on my journey. I have attended workshops by Gregg Kreutz, Susan Sarback, Stacy Barter, Gay Faulkenberg, and Terry Norris
