The Artist Within

How many of us go through life and then all of a sudden, something happens and the direction you are going in changes? Well that happened to me.

In 1999, it became evident that my health was suffering and I need to have a radical hystorectomy. I then had a 7 year old and would have loved more children, but it was not what God wanted for me. He had other plans for me. I had no idea what I would do...and then I saw on TV a Donna Dewberry advertisement for her 1 stroke painting technique. For some reason that piqued my interest. That was the beginning of what has now become a passion to painting...painting of roses. As time has gone on I have create a rose that I really believe to be my OWN rose. I love to try other flowers and other roses...but always come back to my rose. Now that doesn't mean I still don't tweak it here and there...but I have grown fond of my rose. I will leave some pictures for you to see.
