a reason why I paint

10 years ago for my 19th birthday I asked my parents for an easel. I got that easel (which I never use), and I received some canvases and paint from a friend. I started painting and haven't stopped.

Here is one of the reasons I continue to paint:

Meet Miss Elsa. The newest member of the Anderson Family.
You can read about why they chose to adopt here.
The above painting was a gift to Emily and the family as they welcome Elsa home.
{I have another painting for sale and the proceeds go towards the cost for Elsa's adoption.}
