Art will forever be my passion, because it tells a story without words. Sometimes I happen upon an artist who with one brush stroke can say more words than I could write in a lifetime. I'd like you to meet one of those very talented artists. Chances are, you might already know her.
"Those who can ...do and those who can't ...admire those who can! Such talent and skill in capturing moods and expressions is amazing. I am glad you picked up the brushes again. I can't paint beautiful pictures but I can recognize them when I see them. Yours are beautiful!

A wonderful interview with an amazing artist. Dorothy, when you become famous I will say I knew you before! I'm one of those DG Coffee thread people who saw you pick up your brush again and wonder if you still had the touch or would totally disappoint yourself having lost it. And along with the others who watched, I was delighted in what I saw you painting. Gardening is for a season, art is forever.
I am in awe of all of the extremely talented people we are surrounded by here (and on DG)...and who just 'happen' to be gardeners also...could it be the two go hand in hand? The love of beauty in all forms. Your work is lovely, Mc D.......go far.....
I have just read it Dorothy, have known for a long time how talented you are and not just your paintings but your devotion to gardening not just flowers but vegetables also to conserve for winter. Animals play a great part in your life too.
Wishing you success in all your endeavors forever.

Dorothy, could not think of a more deserving person to have had the opportunity to be interviewed by Sharon. I admire the both of you, with your talent, but Dorothy, to have put the brushes away, and then to bring them out again, and doing so well, I bet it was like a reunion with an old friend.
Keep it up, I always wanted to say" I knew her when"! Maybe you are that opportunity for me.
Actually, I just took Dorothy's words as she said them and added a question or two. She wrote the article herself.
But do you know it took me months to get her to talk?? Good grief, she is one busy woman. I chased her for weeks before she'd stop long enough to even tell me her last name! Not that I didn't already know it, but I was afraid I'd spell it in such a weird way she wouldn't even recognize it.
So thank you, Dorothy....it was all my pleasure. You made me want to drag out my watercolors again. Between you and JoAnn, I feel like a fish outta water.
Maybe I'd better stick with acrylics.....or words.....
