Art by Jean
December 10, 2008. I must be crazy but at the age of 74 (will turn 75 in two weeks) I have started a new (third) career. I have been taking art lessons off and on during my adult life but the necessity of supporting a son, then being a housewife to my second husband interfered with my pursuing my art full-time. Now that I am a widow on limited income I am trying to develop the art business. I have won some awards in juried art shows and produce note cards that are sold in a couple of the gift shops attached to local art galleries. Most of my pictures are either colored pencil or pastels, although I have done a few water colors.
