I’ve had my children with me for 36 years. The youngest is leaving for university in a couple of years. Therefore, I’m going to be an empty nester after all these years. Remaining will be my very supportive husband, our little Westie and three golden retrievers. Finding myself and a passion was on a “must do” list. Painting was definitely a front runner. I did a few pieces years ago, but after my last child was born, it became all about her, so I set painting aside for the time being. I started painting classes over a year ago, and found I love it as much now as I did then. So here I am!! Anxious to see what I can do and the people I can meet along this journey. Being a beginner is a wee bit frightening, but everyone starts somewhere. Looking forward to this new chapter! Let my imagination and brush run wild!
