Luck? NO !!!

The momentum of my journey caught many by surprise. If I say everything out loud, recounting each incident one by one, I am quite sure there will be goosebumps aplenty. Some stuff best left unsaid as it could be so easily misconstrued as "trumpeting". Well, some people attributed it to luck. Others made analysis and came out with theories of my service in church, my hospitality to friends and etcetera etcetera. Too many theories of my so called 'phenomenal success'. Seriously, I want to make it known that all that has happened, not humanly possible. HOW ??? For one, I can't be all that lucky and two, I can't possibly be planning all those moves and getting them orchestrated to fall in nic

4th year... begins today

July 12 today. Three years ago, on this day I signed up for a course of 6 art lessons. My first piece, I painted "Ballerinas" . Never thought I would continue painting till this day.

I will also add that I have never been happier, more fulfilled and more satisfied in a job. In spite of the nods I have been getting, I still get the nerves whenever the topic of getting an art collector/ expert to view my work
