I have never had formal art classes or training other than taking art class in high school which was eons ago. As a child and a teen I was immersed in art but when I became a young adult I stopped sketching and painting. I think this was due to lack of confidence and the fact that my generation was not encouraged in their artistic endeavors. We were taught to find a "real job" whether we liked it or not. This was my undoing in being my true self.

It was at the age of 49 that I took up my art again. After the loss of my oldest son I needed something to get me through. Art saved my life.

Been Too Busy To Work On My Art

The past week or so has been crazy busy. My son was offered a job in Denver and he and my daughter-in-law moved there last week. They asked me to move there also and I have decided to do so because there is nothing for me in Ohio. I have lived here all my life but there is no longer a reason to stay and I have always wanted to be out west. I have begun selling some of my furniture and household items and a little packing. I am also looking for an affordable place to live. All of this busyness has caused my remission to end and I am now ill again. I did, however, paint a greeting card today which is something I was too busy to do for the past week. Going too long without painting can make me insane.
