Some things are worth waiting for
When I was in high school, I debated between going to college and getting a Bachelors of Fine Art or a Bachelors in Business Administration. Being the practical person that I am, I chose the latter. Now, nearly 30 years later I will have the opportunity, not to go for that BFA, but to at least pursue my passion for art. On May 1, 2015 I retired from the world of public accounting and suddenly have some extra time on my hands.
Since then I been having fun setting up this website and my studio in a spare bedroom of our home. My husband says I am taking over the whole house with my various arts and crafts. I have even taken over his den as for my home office for my new consulting practice. I tell him that at least the rooms are getting used as they have been empty and unused since our girls left the house and went off to create lives of their own.
I have gathered my assortment of watercolor pencils, paints and brushes and organized them - take a peek into my studio. Pinterest is a wonderful place for ideas...below is a picture of the inspiring rack my husband helped me make to hang my watercolor tubes from. I found the idea here. I really like it and have been filling it up with my favorite line of water color paints - Da Vinci.
It has been nearly 30 years since I did a serious amount of water color painting and I guess you could say I have a lot of pent up creativity in me. I am so looking forward to this new chapter in my life. Let's just say SOMEDAY has come!
