9 x 12 Oil on Canvas
I recently attended a big conference and one of the really successful presentors told a story of her recent book triumph. The success of her book was extremely satisfying to her because when she was young she was told she had absolutely no talent for writing and had shied away from it ever since. I can so relate! I had a similar experience when I was in 7th grade and Mr. Saeger (See, I still vividly remember him) had turned my writing assignment blood red with his vicious red pen and brutal criticism of my prose. I was deeply scarred....obviously for more decades than I want to admit. But more recently, people have shared that they are enjoying reading my blog along with viewing my paintings. Thank you to all that have shared their opinions with me, I really appreciate it. Maybe now I can put Mr. Saeger and his red pen in my mind's recyle bin and hit delete.
