A few months I subscribed to the "Brave Girl's Club" so I could get the "Daily Truth". It is called "A Little Birdie Told Me". The daily reminders are uplifting and supportive. They are featuring my painting, "And I Know He Watches Me" on Oct 14. If you subscribe today, you will see the painting as the feature painting of the day. The "Daily Truths" are free. See if you like them! http://bravegirlsclub.com

After teaching art for 32 years, I can finally create my own art. No more student examples. So I started out making clay masks and progressed to ceramic sculptures that were busts of women depicting the trials of life. In December, 2013, my hands were hurting and I couldn't seem to get them to stop from throbbing after working with the clay all day. In January, 2014, my right thumb "caught" in the down position. The doctor called it trigger finger and I had an outpatient procedure to make my thumb as good as new. The hang up was, I would have to have double carpal tunnel if I continued to work with the clay and any medium that taxed my hands. I considered it to be a sign from above. My task was to find a medium in which I could create, love, and would last from now till the end of my life. I took a Gestural Acrylic class with Heather Everett at the Foosner Art Museum in Eau Gallie, Florida. She was a fantastic inspiration! I also enrolled in a watercolor class with Bobbi Q Brown at Ralph's Art Supply in Eau Gallie. Bobbi is a very thorough and inspirational teacher and artist. If you get a chance, take a class from her. She is fantastic for all levels and she has patience!
