“And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.” – Anaïs Nin
Drawing Lessons by Patricia Sands released this week on Audio and across all platforms! I was deeply moved by this novel and thrilled to have had the opportunity to narrate Sand’s poignant story for Brilliance Audio.
Drawing Lessons follows Arianna’s journey from the heartache and pain of learning that her husband has been diagnosed with frontal lobe dementia, to her courageous decision to return to her abandoned art career. At the insistence of her children, Arianna travels to Arles, France where she partakes in an artist retreat. It is here that she discovers the beauty of life anew. Through friendships, experiences, a shared love of art and a unexpected new love, Arianna finds her strength to “go forth and blossom.”
