Minerva Teichert is not only one of my favorite artists. She is also one of my favorite people. I highly recommend "Minerva! The Story of an Artist with a Mission" by Elaine Cannon. While ranching in Wyoming, Teichert refused to relinquish her remarkable talents (trained in NYC), turning her small living room into her studio. When she had mural commissions, she would look at her paintings backwards through binoculars to make sure the perspective would work from a distance. She was a devoted wife, mother, and friend, using proceeds from her paintings to send students from her small town to college. I own a print of her red-robed Christ, which I have yet to frame, but which has a place waiting for it on my dining room wall.

About this blog

  • When I took a sabbatical from Wall Street to pursue a different dream and help others live theirs, I learned that women in the U.S. may be placated, even pampered, but because we aren't dreaming, we are also desperate and depressed. Drawing on a variety of sources, ranging from academic studies to pop culture, dare to dream encourages us to dream. And then to act on our dreams.
