So I'm back on an old series of birds I did before I quit painting years ago. I took a long break from my brushes while changing a lot of diapers. When I lost my Grandmother, who was an artist, I decided to pick them up again. I wear many hats. Wife, Mother of four, career, artist, and so on. I do my best to juggle it all. It's definitely busy and definitely hard. I think that's one reason I paint with vivid color. It makes me feel good. I remember singing a solo called "Happy" when I was little. That song stuck. With that said, I try and look on the bright side! Color helps me feel better.
