Moving On- As An Artist

I have always wanted to paint more. Not the walls of my house, but on canvas or with watercolors. It has never been a strength, but it is a passion. How many times do we lump strengths and passions together? How can we support our kids' passions when they aren't strengths. My two paintings attached have been with me for a long time hidden in the basement with a hint of embarrassment. Let's make sure our kids don't bury their hard work. Our entire life should be in beta with our heads held high.
