Nice bumping into you at the rink last Sunday. Any chance you could post this? Paula Morgan is one of my very best friends and I’m incredibly proud of her….plus a big fan of her work. Paula also happens to be the Elementary art teacher at West Parrish School in Gloucester. She has her own blog and wrote the following post on it the other day. I thought it would be nice to share it with the community…especially since she teaches a number of their children! Thanks!
“On January 4th I will be placing some recent work on display at the Sawyer Free Library gallery in the lobby. I haven’t displayed my work in a public place in sixteen years! Sixteen years ago, I was 22 years old. So, what has changed in 16 years? I’ve had a couple of career changes, I’ve carved different paths, I moved 6 times, I experienced some significant relationship shifts, I got my Master’s degree in teaching, I got married, I had two children, and in some ways, I like to think I have accomplished a lot, and maybe even grown up a little.Sometimes taking long breaks from painting, but always feeling the itch, never fully abandoning it- I’ve continued to work in spurts, and bursts trying to keep the brushes wet and the artist spirt active.”
