PURE JOY – “Grandma Moses started painting at age 78, and so did I. A long time ago our son Dexter and his wife Jane gave me a book of Grandma Moses’ paintings and I thought, “If she could make such beautiful paintings in old age, I can at least try.” I want my art and this book to encourage others to take up painting, no matter how much experience you do or don’t have. Yes, it takes courage but if you’re fortunate, your friends and family will support your art making. So you see, at any age you can pick up a pen or a paintbrush and express yourself creatively. Don’t be afraid, have a light heart, and especially don’t be too critical of yourself.”
