For years, I allowed every noble distraction take priority over painting. I raised three amazing sons, built two successful businesses, nurtured a beautiful garden, not to mention all the hours enjoying the vortex of lost time.
In 2012 there was a shift. I started a painting-a-day challenge that lasted for 100 days. I would like to say I am still painting every day, but alas, reality. But those 100 consecutive days of painting brought making art to the top of my to-do list.
