I gave up painting for 2 years. Before that I was exhibiting very frequently
in walercolor shows. It takes a lot of time to paint, frame, ship paintings
all over the country; no mention of the expense. Finally, I couldn't do it
anymore. I was tired when i got home ( I am one of your "elder
listees"...argggggh!) So I stopped painting.

Well, this Fall, I had a talk with myself. I decided I was still young at
heart and the body wasn't THAT old that I had to retire from my painting
career. I wasn't about to have a big space in my resume. I got off my
you-know-what, got a girl to clean my house every 2 weeks and began to paint
again. The first one I just finished took Third Place in the Palm Beach
Watercolor Society ( prize money) and I sold the painting for a hefty amount.
My next juried show is next month, and I am framed and ready to go.

I say all this because YOU CAN create your art if you set your heart to it.
Think of it as your mini-vacation within yourself. Revitalize! Rejuvinate!
Surprise yourself!
