Hello Again Dear Friends
It has been almost a year now since I wrote that full length bio and I can't believe how my world has changed. I have been painting now since a year ago June when I picked up my first artist brush and felt that first rush of creating a picture. I know that a higher power was guiding my hand, there could be no other reason.
My world had been turned upside down. I had been diagnosed with two serious illnesses and consequently forced to give up what was, and I think still is, my passion; to rescue and adopt out retired racing greyhounds. I had been active in that for thirteen years and might never have started painting if it weren't for the forced retirement and the doctor telling me that I had to stay active I had also lost my beloved Lindsey, my little black greyhound that was my constant companion and soulmate. She was thirteen and my grieving was intense and I must admit, a day doesn't go by without my thinking about her and missing her so much, I still grieve for her. I have since been able to paint her, something I never thought I could do. I will finish this later.
