“Optimism is the faith that leads to achievement. Nothing can be done without hope and confidence.”

Another KC House – 4″ x 6″ Watercolor & Ink
This is my step-sister’s house. She lives in the Kansas City
metropolitan area, as does my step-mom. I am really looking forward
to seeing Joan (step-mom) when I am in KC. I drove up to visit her a
couple years ago and we had a nice time.
I woke up this morning in a panic. I realized I only have 2 weeks
until I have to submit my inventory list for the KC show. I am going to
set a doable goal of framing 3 paintings a day, minimum, so I can take a
little of the pressure off. April may see me going back to painting
Eufaula again. I already have one painting commissioned that I really
need to get to. All of this when the sign shop is the busiest ever! I
am woman… hear me roar!
About Helen Keller
American author and activist Helen Keller was born in Alabama on June
27, 1880; she became blind and deaf after a childhood fever. When she
was 7, Ann Sullivan famously coaxed her out of her sullen, angry shell
and taught her to communicate. From then on, Keller took on the world.
She graduated from Radcliffe, traveled the world visiting sweatshops and
speaking out for the powerless, helped found the ACLU, and wrote eleven
books. She died on June 1, 1968.
