But something strange happened recently…-I’ve found peace in painting and restoring furniture.-It’s almost akin to the release I get when I go to the gym…-I know that’s an odd comparison, but follow me.-When I paint, and bring a new piece back to life I feel accomplished.-When I see the smile on someone’s face who purchases it from me and loves the work it’s rewarding.-I’ve had some bad days, came home picked up a brush and almost instantly I feel better.-I’m thankful for yet another positive...
