What does a plein air artist do when the weather simply won’t allow for outdoor painting?  It’s too hot, humid, cloudy and even a little windy.  They retreat to the recesses of the studio and paint a still life.  The true artist never lets a day go by without lifting a brush – even if it means painting a wall.

The day will come when the paint will no longer flow.  I pray it will last forever.

My book, "Stages - a memoir," is about the seven stages of life from the perspective of a woman. It addresses all the things girls and women go through in life as they travel it with Jesus, and it is available on
