About

Hello Friends, old & new!

From the time I was a 10 or 11 years old I found fun & creative things to do, drawing posters for church sales, making purses from fabric swatches, knitting 7' neckties for my dad, the Craft House at summer camp was my all time Favorite Place to be, but never did anyone encourage me to continue art into adulthood. I took an art class in high school, but art just wasn't considered a "career path". I even took a few pottery classes in college, but like a good little soldier, I marched into the business world and sat down at an accounting job to earn a "proper income".

After 13 years of an Accounting career and then another 30 years of a computer career, "Right Brain" said, "Hey, is it my turn yet?" and I thought "Yes. Yes it is." And as they say I went back to the 'drawing board' and began to paint. I did OK on my own... but I wanted more... I needed and wanted classes! ... Where can I learn and find a mentor? Thank goodness for short-term workshops and YouTube.

One of my deepest desires is to open an Art Center for kids and adults to come and immerse themselves in a variety of art mediums. Explore... learn... have fun... and maybe, just maybe forge a career path. I don't want them to have to look as hard for guidance, and if they want to make it a career I want to encourage that.  It would be a bonus if this "art center" had a space for a gallery! Art Showings and Openings to introduce new and upcoming artists and perhaps a floor to rent out art studios for those who have no room at home but are truly dedicated! But I'm getting ahead of myself... first I needed a space larger than my extra bedroom to work in.

Last summer, 2019,  I did find a place to serve as a studio and a classroom... now the challenge is to pay the rent! By word of mouth and a couple open houses people began to hear about "Brush with many colors" and come for a few classes. BUT THEN!... just as it was getting past the Christmas hump... we were hit with this COVID-19 virus.  Bye-bye classes... Everybody GO HOME. ... Now what? and with Rent still to pay! 

I hope you consider helping me on this journey by supporting my art. I know we will return to the studio one day, and the rebuilding will begin again, but even after that, there is much to do!

Thank you!
Ruth
