A few years ago, I attended a "sip and paint" class. With the first brushstroke my heart beat faster. But...I was busy with my career, working long and hard at a job I loved. On March 1, I retired with a new outlook that life is just too short. For years, my husband and I have dreamed of retiring early and traveling the world. But he's still working for a little while longer. So with newly found time on my hands, I signed up for an oil painting class. I was lucky to find a great teacher who knew how to unleash an artist I didn't know existed. This is my journey to discover where my art can lead. I will share my learnings and my paintings with you. I will also take you on my travels as I visit new places around the world and find new inspirations to paint. Join me, we'll have fun.
