At the age of 50 I thought I had a firm grasp on all I liked and didn’t like, of what I excelled at and what I didn’t. Yet, I had no idea I could paint. What’s more, I had no idea how much I would love painting . Art changed everything, including trajectory of my career choices. I never imaged that, in my 50’s, I would wake up excited in anticipation of the time I would spend at my easel.
