Thank you.

I am new to this and clueless as to what to say.  So I will start with this:

I am a 56 year-old lady originally from Florida, currently living in Biloxi, MS.  Piano and clarinet (music) was a large part of my childhood until my 34 year-old mom died of leukemia.  Being 14 years old and the oldest of 4 children, I became "mom" sort of.  I have had a desire to paint for years but just didn't know where to start, with absolutely no education in painting. 

Something devastating occurred in our family in March 2016.  My 36 year-old brother went missing from the Pensacola, Florida area.  After weeks of searches, investigative interviews, flyers, posters, etc., I finally returned to my home in Biloxi, Mississippi.  My emotion needed to find it's place - and with the support of a dear friend and discovery of Ginger Cook and The Art Sherpa, which I love and learn from, and inspiration from Monet, painting is happening in my home now.  Daily painting.  I will try to upload some examples of my kindergarten/beginner paintings.
