About

The Beginning of my Painting Life

I started painting well over 20 years ago, never intending it to be what it is today. I went to a craft show and stated the classic line, "I can do that". I always liked art in school, but for some reason never was given the classes I signed up for. I lost my husband when I was 27 and had 3 small girls. They needed me home and I had to find a way to be there. I saw some painted things at shows, so I tried my hand, well, hmph, I wasn't so good. I bought books, I started painting miniatures for shadow boxes and selling like crazy at the flea market and shows. I quickly came to discover I like painting bigger things.
I went on to take a class from Catherine Holman, loved her whimsical towns and houses.
I was outgrowing our apartment so after 13 years we moved to the woods and hence, the painting room happened in a closed in back porch that we have redone, the views of the woods are wonderful for me, though wishing it was a bigger room. I spend much time in this little 8x11 room.
In that transition time I had to return to work for a few years and the grandchildren started coming, no time for painting and I missed it, it was like withdraw from my creative side and I wasn't happy. After some physical problems and then some surgery, I have had the opportunity to stay home and babysit a few of the grandchildren as a means of income. Painting commenced once again.
I then discovered online selling venues. I also discovered the fun of trash to treasure painting which cut costs and enabled me to sell at lower prices. Though it is not full time yet, I am striving to make it that way and hoping that the 20 year dream will come to reality.
I have certainly collected enough to paint to keep me busy for a year or 2, now to collect the time! My basement is a virtual warehouse of teapots, cabinets, pans, pots and everything under the sun and I take every chance I have to find another yard sale or thrift store to search.
Thanks so much for visiting me today, Stop by often, you never know what I might dream up next.
