One of my newest endeavors? I'm creating all sorts of paintings in acrylics. All kinds, all sizes and having the best time trying this new medium. I haven't settled on an actual personal style because I'm only into this in the past 8 months. However, I discovered, much to my surprise, I've got some degree of talent at it. (At least that's what I'm told.)
Now, I cannot yet show you some of my work for two reasons. First, some of my early work involved making copies. These helped me to learn to see and to paint better and better. While it's a legitimate way to learn, they can not be posted here or sold because that could infringe on someones copyright. The second reason is this......SHHHHHHHH.....Christmas!!!!!
Please, don't tell my grown up kids. If you don't tell them, then I promise to post my Original Paintings Right Here. How's that sound.
Oh, just to tease you, I have posted above one which I gifted to a friend recently. (Can I tell you she really liked it.)
I hope your life is full of love, laughter and meaningful activity.
All my best to you and yours at Christmas and all through this coming year.
Hugs and Blessings,
Susie E. Caron

I retired from teaching, became a psychotherapist treating children and families and an author. After retiring I became a full time artist.
I recently reopened this parenting blog because I believe wisdom is to be shared.

Just wanted to say that I love your posts about the different ways to connect/relate/understand your child. It has given me a new approach towards understanding my daughter and allowing HER to tell me how she feels instead of me suggesting to her how she should feel. Thanks Susie!
