When I was diagnosed with MS, saying I was overwhelmed is an understatement. I have painted since I was a child. Art, painting, sewing, whatever is how I work problems out and make the world my happy place again. I won’t say MS has taken away things, but it has changed the way I do things.
Instead of being a participant in an activity I now am the historian, taking pictures that I later paint. Instead of traveling, I have a good friend who travels and always sends me pictures to paint.
When MS took my right hand for a while, I switched to using my left and a pallet knife to create a waterfall.
MS in its own way has made me improve my skill set to rise to the challenges it sends.
Peace and Joy
