Art comes from the heart, and in the case of Linda Dwyer it also comes from the soul.
Dwyer began painting in September 2016 after a visit to New Orleans.

She really inspired me,” she said. “Returning home, I prayed and asked God what my purpose was in this stage of life since entering an empty nest and felt God had put on my heart to paint. I started painting and it has been the most amazing adventure.”

Moore, Byron 2015.jpg

Question: My sister and I got in a fight over Mom and Dad’s estate. She thinks they should give us most of their assets so they can qualify for the government paying for their nursing home one day. I think that’s wrong. What do you think?
Answer: When it comes to settling arguments between sisters, I usually try to speak out of both sides of my mouth, then duck. So let me give that a shot …
First, Uncle Sam does not like paying the nursing home bills of people that have assets.
