Yes Val, I could not put my heart and soul into this day in and out if I did not love doing it. I can honestly say I have found my passion.

 :thankyou: Val, Patricia and Sharon. There is never a dull moment, each day is different, with new people to talk to. The owner of the builing has a 7 year old daughter, who was asked by her friend if she could come over for a play date so that she can meet the artist. She told her mum she wants to be as good as me. That to me is worth more than any sale.

What a cute story.  Yup, experiences like that make the day worthwhile.  Without even realizing it, you are mentoring the next generation of artists.

Good for you.

Yes indeed, that is what it is about. I had never had so much fun as when sitting sketching or splattering paint with the local kids in places we have stopped. I gave away far too many of my good drawing pencils last year, but seeing the joy of what a single pencil and notebook can bring to a child is priceless. Especially when it doesn't involve schoolwork!  :2funny:

Those are the times when life truly is worthwhile.  O0
Cheers, Val
