Just a short blog this week to say how thankful I am for being part of the great tradition of painting that is practiced and celebrated all over the world.

Painting allows me to get away not only from my own problems but also the worldly ones as well, if only for a while each time I pick up a brush.

That, all by itself, is more than enough reason to be thankful for painting.


  1. I certainly agree. I paint most days,it is my relaxation and therapy. Thanks for all your tips and comments. I look forward to what you will say next.
