My art brings me back to nature, which feeds my soul. I feel one with the subjects I paint. I hope some of these colors also give you a sense of well-being. Enjoy!
Teaching creatively has been my passion for 25 years. Literature was brought to life using children's backgrounds, pastels, paint, clay, theater, music, creative writing and more. On vacation time, I painted to replenish , as I listened to my favorite playlists! This school year, as I had my kiddos in class brainstorm and write about their likes and goals, my example was painting. It wasn't always like that.
On Halloween of 2002, my hubby underwent open-heart surgery to replace 2 valves that were damaged, due to a bacteria. Before the surgery, we snuggled close in his hospital bed, crying from fear and sorrow, not knowing if it will all go well. He has a healthy heart, thank God. All is good!
That Christmas holiday, Lon surprised me with a beginner's oil painting set! All I ever did was doodle cartoon characters or decorate letters, when I was a kid! Lon's card to me, that went along with the paint kit , lovingly expressed how this is his best holiday and praised me for being there for him. The he added, ' So here is a little something for you on this day to expand your horizons and reach out for more of what life has for you. '
