My Painting Despite MS Damage


I painted the above picture during my acrylic class at our local Senior Citizen Center.

I am right proud of it!  I didn't think I could paint anymore since high school.  I have aged and with MS damage (feels like I have a glove on) in my right hand.


My instructor said I should take it to our local courthouse since they were showing art by local artists in August.

It was displayed very nicely in the courthouse

I encourage others to try something you didn't think you could do anymore.....

Kim is really Beauty beautiful and I agree with Jenny that you were very talented and gifted. I don't see how it could be any better than it is. I did not do well in art in school barely passed

AWESOME! Great job Kim. Like you I feel that I have to push to do things I don't think I can or to push myself to just keep going at times. You are in my thoughts.
