I also turned 50 this December and made a 360 degree change to return to Mental Health and left my 8 years of Lightcrafters in Austin to work for Caritas of Austin. This was a big change and a perfect match for my interest in mental health. I will participate in only 2 shows this year including my own show in Oct 2012 at Hyde Park Bar and Grill Central. This is a nice goal 10 months out to paint around 30 pieces. Gonna be a great year !
