Tenacity


When I was a young girl,
my Daddy told me, 
I could do anything 
that I set my mind to...
and
 I could be anything 
I wanted to be.

As I grew into a young woman
and entered the workforce,
I realized that it was still a man's
world.

I tossed that power suit
and heels...
and I made my own way.
I followed my bliss 
of family, children,
and my art.

Many a time,
 I would  hear that I couldn't
complete my vision
in the way or technique 
that I wanted.

I have always
stepped quietly away 
from those men...
and came back, 
proving them wrong.

Tenacity
has always served me well.
It keeps me challenging
myself 
to work out a
"can't" and make it a "can".
It pushes me
to grasp
the process and technique
in areas that 
I feel are not my strength
and own just a bit of it.

....in the end,
it comes down to problem-solving.

This year,
I am using 
my 
tenacity
to work on
human faces
and watercolor.

Who says
that you
just have to 
pick one???
