A stunning nautical print that catches the eye of all swimmers and nonswimmers alike! This was such an easy transaction. The seller is the actual artist, which makes this piece even more special. She added such a personal touch with her thank you and updates. I will be back!
"Any arbitrary turning along the way, and I would be elsewhere. I would be different."
That quote from Frances [Diane Lane] in Under the Tuscan Sun (one of my favorite movies) sums up how I feel about my art career. It was a chance lunch with a friend on a warm September day in 1994... a chance stroll through our town center... a chance encounter with a painting shop that led me to where I am today. Had any of those things not occurred, I would be elsewhere. I would be different.
Although I never took any lessons beyond that one night a week / 6 week beginner course that I signed up for that day, I was hooked. I painted furiously at home, which led to selling my work in craft fairs, and eventually, to where I am today.
I'm not sure where I'd be had there been "any arbitrary turning along the way," but I am so grateful that there wasn't. I think this path, for me, was meant to be.
(Thank you to my mom and dad, who came to ever craft fair I was ever in. Mom, you"oohed and aahed" over all the drawings I did as a child. Dad, how I wish I had some of the original 'pin-up girl' drawings that you created for the other GI's during WWII. You are both my heroes! I love you and miss you every day!)
I hope you all enjoy your visit to Etsy!
All my best,
Wannabe artist who paints her dreams...
