Middle Child, as the title would suggest, is based on how a middle child feels. It is often written that a middle child gets lost between the older and younger siblings. I am a middle child. I have two older brothers and two younger brothers. Because my siblings are all male I was never really lost in the abyss that many middle children feel. I was the only girl in a family of men...I always felt special..always felt loved and always felt relevant. Being the only girl in a family of men helped me in many ways. I was brought up believing I could accomplish any thing I aspired to. I am a problem solver, a do it yourselfer, and a self starter.
In my 50's I decided I wanted to be a portrait artist. Most of my family was supportive and I believe they have all had portraits painted as I practice my craft. I constantly strive to improve through daily painting, classes and studying the works of others. I feel very fortunate to be able to pursue this dream. I know I have a lot to learn, a long way to go...but I am pleased with my progress so far and look forward to the future.
