Once upon a time, my friend Diana and I had a greeting card business called “Rainberry”. We were full of youthful enthusiasm and creativity, but alas – the card business was not meant to be our fulfilled dream. Just before the Jets left Winnipeg, Diana and I had designed a greeting card with which we hoped to make our “mark” in the industry.
My dream today is to paint. I have never been as happy doing anything else in my life. It was like the “stars aligned” in 2007 when I started my new job, married my darling husband and pulled my paintbrushes out of mothballs.
The affirmation at Manitoba’s Art Expo has only whetted my appetite to continue to paint. I met many new friends at the show. My booth-neighbours, Pam, Eileen, Blake and Joe – among many others, made me feel very welcome. Manitoba has truckloads of talent!
