11 x 14 inches, Oil on Canvas
About five years ago I was sitting down to a cup of coffee and opened our local newspaper....I'd been feeling that middle-aged itch, I suppose. I was a Realtor at the time but I didn't feel like it was working for me. I guess I was feeling a little melancholic and sorry for myself that morning and reading the classifieds when I saw a little ad that read "Art Lessons".
That was all it took. I'd not painting in decades and suddenly here it was! Art lessons! I could take art lessons and get back into it. I immediately called and set up lessons and here I am.
I am so glad I'd called on that ad and got back into painting because it has been a joyous little journey. It has also taken me on a sometimes bumpy road.
This little rose painting is one of the first that I did when I started back into painting. It's not for sale - it reminds me of my first art lessons.
