During this bleak year my love of creating Art has been a boon. I found light in the darkness by creating my Art. I became more disciplined and completed many unfinished paintings. I became lost in memories, and the beauty of the surrounding scenery saved me from loneliness, giving me such joy. I found it so stimulating to go out of doors to paint. The friendship of family and like minded people , as well as continued. Art Exhibitions became so important, so I find it hard to imagine a world without the Arts.
