I’m learning so much in the Color Theory class I’m taking this semester. The instructor is Jim Flahaven at the University of Southern Maine.

At the tender age of 65, I decided to go back to college to get an art degree. What inspires me most about painting is that for the first time in my life, I don’t worry (too much!) about making mistakes and I don’t get frustrated (too much!) because something doesn’t turn out as I imagined. Instead, I find myself noticing problems and trying to figure out solutions. Over and over, I will ask myself, “I wonder what will happen if I try this?” It’s the same question I asked when I realized that pursuing a BFA at USM was within my grasp. And so, I am! I also write another BDN blog called Catching Health. Take a moment to check it out at catchinghealth.bangordailynews.com.
