Here I am again...I found inspiration with Louisa May Alcott's wonderful quote "I am not afraid of storms, for I am learning how to sail my ship." Has a personal meaning for me, too...and hopefully when faced with a few upcoming challenges, I'll be sailing my ship with a little more finesse! The ship in a storm is a painting by Aivazovsky Ivan Konstantinovich and it hangs in the Hermitage Museum. So, hopefully this tag makes the grade for this week's challenge.
Born and raised a city girl (Chicago). Now I live 23 miles south of D.C. Have loved art all my life. Primarily self taught. Raised 3 sons solo and they are my pride and joy. I have a 7 yr old granddaughter and a 2 year old grandson. They are the apples of my eye, and I hope they will love art as I do.
