Life After Breast Cancer: Painting

The Road, by Patricia Prijatel                 copyright 2016
When I was in college and choosing careers, I was torn between being an artist and a writer. I chose not to be an artist because, to my teenage self, the only way an artist could make a decent living was by teaching and I didn't want to teach. Ironically, I ended up with a highly rewarding career as a writing teacher. Go figure.

Anyway, I am returning to my roots and doing things that I simply find enjoyable. This painting is of the road to our Colorado cabin.

Painting relaxes and exhilarates me, and I am proud of this one. The excellent photo of it comes from a talented photographer who is a former student from my teaching days.

So life goes on, in full color.
