November 1st marked a momentous occasion for me - my first Art Show! Here is my story….and the amazing lesson I learned from it! About 6 months ago I took some space in the Benson Building - a fantastic older building in downtown Sioux City. There are 9 artists with studio space there - and each fall and spring they band together to do a group show, the Benson Burner.

Waiting in the wings to be finished!
I was very excited - over 300 people came thru the studio during the show. What a thrilling experience for someone who first picked up a paintbrush three short years ago.

Here is what I learned from this show… anything is possible. I've been a left brained numbers kind of girl for a very, very long time. 3 years ago I listened to the little whispers in my head that would talk to me while looking at art. They whispers said "You could do that….you just don't know how." So I learned how. And I did it. And if I can do it, anyone can. It simply takes a willingness to listen, and a fearlessness to take some action. You all have that in you. I do - and it led me to an amazing art show and the faith that anything - ANYTHING! - is possible! Part of the Travel Collection
