I have to give my counselor, Anita Warren, credit for inspiring me to paint. I had not painted anything since 2004.   I am doing a counseling course called “New Beginnings,”  which is part of the Integrity Program.  Anita helped me set some goals for myself.  I had a burning desire to paint but nothing would come out.  The first time I picked up a brush I destroyed several sheets of watercolor paper and gave up for that day (Sunday).  Then on Monday, I got up with a new determination to begin another painting.  It happened and I don’t want to stop.  I am looking forward to painting many more pictures, thanks to my dear friend and counselor, Anita Warren.  JF
