2016 MSAA MS Ability Art Showcase – AOM May
David Desjardins – Union, ME
Painting has always been a rewarding way to express myself. Ironically, I find that as my disabilities increase, so does the quality of my work increase.
To me, there is no better feeling than hearing someone tell me how much they love a painting I created. It gives me a tremendous feeling of well-being and accomplishment every time I finish one.
After you’ve lived with MS for a while, you realize that there will be things you have to give up doing because physically, you are not able to be the person you once were. That’s why I believe it is so important to concentrate on things you are still able to do. In my case, I feel very fortunate to be doing what I love and to be part of this very talented group of artists.
