painters block, oh whoa.. is me…
it haunts me very deeply…
I want so much to paint,
… but darkness and pain still surrounds me.

this is how I feel.. I so want to pick up those paint brushes and go for it.. but it has not come to me yet.. the feeling, the want,, the need, the creativity is blocked by heartache… I am struggling to get the passion back… for passion was taken away from me.. I am hoping the love of painting will soon bring back new pallets of color and shine as I take on my journey of this love lost I must leave behind..soon I expect,, brilliant colors and shapes will form in my mind and a brush I will uptake… until then.. I am suffering from painters block..have been for awhile!
“painters block”

I am a self taught artist and have drawn and painted since I could hold crayons or a pencil in my hands..
My brain is an attic filled with treasures yet to be explored or recreated.. I am a Veteran,a wife, a mom, a grandmother, a sister, a daughter and a teacher!!! My pallet is full of life, color and energy.. I hope you will see and feel that in all of my artwork.
