Moms who Paint
My original thought on my blog was to encourage moms who paint. When I began teaching, around 1997, I discovered that many of the women in my workshops or classes had painted in high school or college, and then they stopped cold when they had children. No doubt, it is hard to keep painting with little kids, but I did it, and I had 5 children within 9 years, so I know it can be done. It does take some planning and a few gadgets, but it can be done. Here are a few pictures of my daughter Priscilla. She attends the "Open" figure sessions when she can. As you can see, she uses a backpack, which is what I did too. You can see many more pictures, if you keep going back to older posts in the blog, where I am painting with a backpack. The backpack is a mom's best friend.
