Dreaming in Watercolor

Since a young girl, I have dreamed of being an artist. I grew up with a strong desire to want to learn how to draw and never had the opportunity until high school. It was in high school where I realized that I could draw and it could be more than a dream. However some discouraging things happened out of my control and I had to drop out of my advanced art class. But that didn't stop me from wanting to pursue a degree in art. I decided I would learn in college, then I met my husband to be and all that went out the window. I have never regretted that decision. I just figured my artistic dream was just that: a Dream.

I mentioned my desire to learn art again to my husband, Harrison. I explained how I felt it was too late. He disagreed and encouraged me to follow my art dream. Isn't he a doll?

My favorite art would have to be watercolors. I dont know if my watercoloring will ever amount to much, but I am having a blast learning. There is a really good online art community that I have been privileged to join in. More about them later.....

One of my favorite watercolor artists, Susan Branch, started watercolors when she was 30 years old. Guess what? That is how old I am!! I guess maybe it isn't too late for me to learn.
