    I couldn’t agree with you more Sherry. Making art changes the way I see. My surroundings are transformed because the action of painting focuses my attention on things like form, value and chroma. This focus heightens my perception and the world is made new. Not just while painting but often when I’m looking at the things around me. This benefit is not understood until it is experienced. Thanks, Ron
