A crazy dream

OK, let me put this out there: I’d love to be a full-time artist one day.

I know I’m nowhere near being able to even consider that, but if I put in the work, and lean on God’s grace, maybe in five or ten years I’ll be producing paintings that people actually want to buy.

At 46, I’m still willing to dream big.

I enjoyed picking up two (or more) colours on the brush and making marks with them.

Thanks, Dan Scott, for the Q&A this came from!
