Painting the picture! Nearly a year ago, an organization I helped to start in my home area took on a strange complexion.

How I Got Here. . . This past Monday, friend Harold had to have some lab work done. As usual, there was a short wait. Being the antsy woman I can sometimes be, I picked up a copy of Entrepreneur magazine with Jonathan and Drew Scott on the cover. If you watch the HGTV channel,…
