My Love of Art!

I’m 63 yrs old, I grew up loving art. In my late teens and early 20’s I sold several pieces, as I grew old life happened and became a widow with 2 children to rear. So the responsibilities of this life took me away from my first love, art! Five year ago I became disabled and for the first time did not know what to do with my life.

I heard an Italian sing group made up of three teenagers called “Il Volo”, Falling in love with their beautiful music, they spoke of following their dreams and that anyone can dream! So two year later I said why not. I purchased what I needed and began sketching again. Though very crude at first, it finally started coming back. I have been selling some pieces again and I sketch daily, but even at my age I know there is still much to learn. I cannot get out because of my disability, but I can learn and that is what I want to do!

From the pieces of video clips I watched, I found it very interesting and probably what I need.

I want to win so that I can grow in knowledge of art and enhance what I love to do, art!

I have returned to my first at age 63.

    Lavina, your drawings of all three of our guys of Il Volo are all great… I can see your abilities returning as you continue to use Il Volo for your models… Each drawing just is better than the last… And all so beautiful… You are blessed with such talent… I am so glad that you choose to share it with your Il Volo Family…

    Have seen Lavina Keuker’s work online and she is a truly talented lady, and I support her desire to go back to school and learn as much as she can about art, to fulfill her desire to be the best artist she can be.
