Call me an accidental artist, replied Page Evans. I started painting several years ago as a form of therapy. I was looking for something that nurtured my creativity without tiring me emotionally. I write personal essays--sometimes humorous, sometimes heartfelt, always honest. And striving to be so honest can leave me feeling raw and exposed at times. So I needed a break. And that's when the painting started. Recent paintings by Page can be viewed at the Ralls Collection located in Georgetown, 1516 31st Street, NW, Weds through Friday 11 am to 4 PM or by appointment.
