"*Life Long Lov* e"

Art has been an important part of my life.
In my life it’s encompassed learning to draw and paint, studying other artist as the masters and creating work.
It is very much an important part of my life.

It’s enriching to read about other artist’s life too.
One of my favorite artists is Renoir. He was one of the great Expressionist.
I love how he captured light and a mood in his colorful paintings of people.
I received a book about Renoir’s Life, Art and Letters.
One of my favorite paintings is " Dance at Bougival".
I’ve seen it live at the Fine Art museum in Boston, MA. I feel like I can feel the two dancers swaying with each other admist the dance.
Renoir would produce paintings through his entire life. Even when he developed rheumatiod arthritis later in his life, he found a way to keep on creating. Creating was at the center of his life. In that lifetime he and his fellow artists, like Monet, would explore and create a new movement called expressionism.
He would die in 1919 at seventy three yrs old. His paintings would continue to be exhibited and viewed by people. Even today one can visit museums and see the work of the masters through time.
I’ve always sort of had a sense of always doing my art throughout my life too. I’ve felt like I am meant to create art, as Renoir had been. I don’t know that I’ll create an art movement or not, but I’ll always strive to do my best work.
My mom comments that I started drawing when I first picked up a pencil. I’ve kept at it through the years: learning, studying, working, and creating.

I continue to do my art work. I have done some really neat creative projects and have had some exhibits of my work.

I plan to always take the time to make art no matter how old I get. I’ll be approaching in a couple of years – the golden jubilee, - 48 this Feb. 7. So thinking of such things. I plan to create art throughout my life time as Renoir did.

One is never too old to create.
