Self Portrait

 

 

 

You might be thinking, “Strange self portrait.  She doesn’t even show her face.  Looks like a weirdo to me.”  Probably, read on….

I’ve been a lot of things in my long life: wife, mother, Associate Professor of Mathematics, Elder Law Attorney, writer of math books, legal books and even a Gluten Free Cook Book — but I never was an artist until I turned 80 in 2011. At the age of 80, I found myself with more time and energy than I knew to do with. I happened to pass by the Boca Raton Museum of Art School. A sign said fall classes were about to start, so I signed up for a basic drawing class. Outside of elementary school, I never drew anything in my life. I was surprised to see how easily it all came to me and I’ve been painting ever since.
