2021 MSAA Art Showcase Entrants
Les Klein – Goshen, NY
I was diagnosed with MS 28 years ago. I am a retired teacher trained as an art teacher, but never taught art.
I lost interest, concentration and motivation due to the curve balls MS threw at me.
After 32 years in the classroom and computer lab I looked for things to do. I found an amazing art group led by an enthusiastic artist who convinced me that I never lost my creative edge. Pushing myself, I regained my strength and immersed myself in acrylics and watercolors combining my inability to travel with my ability to use photos of others’ travels. This enabled me to be a world traveler without leaving my own secure nest and kept me creatively current.
My paintings take us to international waters and a closer look at home.
I’m moving toward more paintings, more places thanks to my brushes and a camera.
