Description This painting has one of my little poems I have written. It says, 'Struggles that lay before me, Become like stepping stones To something bigger than I am. Each one meant to harm me, but builds me up instead.' We all have things come our way that are hard to get through but once we get through we have become stronger because of it.This painting stems from my childhood memories of jumping stones to get to the other side of the creek. This is a painting most likely in the spring. To see or buy some of my original art go to PjCreates.etsy.com.
Penny Pausch, Jonesboro Member Since February 2012 Artist Statement I grew up way back in the hills of Missouri (U.S.). I was a country girl and loved every moment of it. My sister and I did not have many toys and so we played outside on trees and other things in the woods and learned to use our imagination. This has become an asset to me. I knew by the 5th grade that I wanted to be an artist more than anything else. I like to paint, sew, minipulate objects so that they are interesting, cook, and write poetry. One of my goals is to write a poetry book and illustrate it. I recently have gone back to college after 17 years of raising my children.
