Laura Patchen – Pittsford, NY

I have been diagnosed with MS since 1998, and stopped working because of it in 2005.  I began painting around 2010, looking for something to do that would make me feel like I had accomplished something.  I enjoy painting immensely.  It gives me joy and reminds me of places I’ve visited.  The gazebo holds special spot in my heart, as my daughter got married in a gazebo a few months ago.  One of the wonderful things about painting is that when I become tired, I can put it aside and go back to it another day when I have more energy. I know that eventually, I will finish what I’ve started- it just might take me a little bit longer than I’d like.
