I started Francine Proulx-Harveytaking painting lessons when I was late forties, but I had it in my heart to learn many years earlier.  I guess you could say that life prevented me from trying my hand at it.

I saved a much loved picture of my husband with my third baby daughter in his arms as an inspiration.  I kept in in a special place in our home and I kept the desire to paint in a special place in my mind.   As they say, there is a season for everything, so when my children were mostly grown, our dairy farm sold and my parents living with us, it seemed to be the time to walk down this road.

I don’t pretend to be knowledgeable or even a good artist, but I know I love knowledge and love to paint…hence my blog.
