Art Sisters

There is something that I could have never imagined that would happen in my lifetime, is that I would have a group of friends that are considered my "Art Friends". Before children came in my life, I did some painting. And then when I had children, my art existed helping in science projects, 4-H demonstrations, and other school activities that required some creative help. A divorce after 27 years of marriage made me seek what I loved and enjoyed. I had to find myself. A few years down the road I met a man that was an artist.  He was a kite maker...I married him. That's another story for another time. In our time together we would go to the bookstores, and I found a Somerset Press Gallery magazine. That magazine would open up a entirely new world me. I had no idea that it was going to take hold of me. BIG hold! I wanted to know make some of this art. I searched the internet and found classes around the nation. My first adventure was "Art and Soul"
