    Hi, Wendy. I have been going through my older Somersets and found your DREAM collage and article in the back of one. I have read that article at least 3 times before and it just dawned on my that is was YOURS!!

    I must tell you when I got that issue that was early on in my art days…I haven’t been painting but a few years and I was scared to do anything and call it art. I remember seeing your work DREAM and thinking how much I loved it…the colors and the look of it. I kept thinking that it would be something I would create….then I read your article and was so touched. I don’t know what your injuries were from that accident but I suffered whip lash 20 years ago and it has caused me chronic pain ever since. Somedays it’s too much and I am in bed…most days it’s just annoying and I live on pain meds aspirin. Art has been so healing for me, too and a blessing.

    I really get your work and love it and love coming here. I found your blog quite awhile back on Brave Girls site. I rarely leave comments here (i should) but I stop by and have your button on my blog.

    Keep up all that you do!!!!
