After a 20 year career owning a commercial interior plant company in the East Bay, raising two wonderful sons, and a new marriage, I was able to look at life in a fresh way….one that included things I had always wanted to explore. I picked up a paint brush at a silent women’s retreat through our church in 2004. It was like a whole new world opening before me! Totally hooked from day one. I began classes at the local junior college, took private lessons, all in oil painting.  A couple of years ago I was at our local association meeting, and a pastelist demonstrated her work. I loved it! I have sold a few paintings and won a few awards, but even though that is a wonderful side benefit, the true value is the self-satisfaction gained through the creative process. I look forward to joining this art society and meeting my fellow members.
