I put my oil paints away at the age of ten after two years of childhood delight!  Later with a second undergraduate  degree in art education, I was provided the opportunity to open the eyes of children to the world of creative expression.  Retirement age arrived and with it, God provided me the time, place, and people to encourage exploration of my creative self once again.  Life is good!
