Surprisingly it has become the backbone of my survival.
When my world entered an alternate dimension 2 1/2 years ago, the only thing I had that was the same was my art, students and friends.
I left a marriage with my clothes, art supplies, a dresser and a shelf.
Zero money in fact I had to borrow to hire a lawyer.
I continue to fight through lawyers for what is mine by law.
In the meantime one must survive. How do you do that? I am not one to sit in a corner and cry much to the dismay of my first set of lawyers. I was given two hands and a mind for a reason. I was given the gift of being able to paint.
So that is what I have done. It keeps my head above water and a smile on my face.
Granted I have had to find other means of income as well, but this is my sanity. My saving grace is to be able to paint. To be able to teach.
I have been so very grateful to those who want to be taught by me and who teach me so much in return.
Each of you touch my life whether you are a student, a friend, a family member, or someone persuing this by pure chance.
Enjoy art in all forms, it truly is life.
