Bonsoir, lovers. Please allow me to introduce myself. I’m Bethany Fine. I was born in San Francisco and raised in a small bayside village north of the city called Tiburon. It was here, under the tutorship of my beautiful mother, that I fell in love with painting. Honestly, who couldn’t want to paint the beautiful landscapes we saw every morning from this hills overlooking the San Francisco Bay? I attended The Academy of Art University in San Francisco and majored in Fine Art. It was at the university where I found the love of my life, Josie. She and I clicked immediately, and I can’t think of a single day we have been apart since.
As any aspiring artist will tell you, making a living out of your passion is difficult work, and fine art painting is probably one of the hardest (maybe second only to living statues). Josie and I struggled to make ends meet while still nurturing our desire to create. Then, in the summer of 2009, Josie was diagnosed with cancer. Rather than allow western medicine to poison her body, we decided to seek the help of holistic healers from around the globe. We traveled like nomads across Europe, and into Asia seeking the help of every healer we could find. It took two years before we made it back to the states and another healer in northern Minnesota.
When Josie was diagnosed cancer-free in 2012 we were living in a small apartment in our northern Minnesota town. We loved being so close to nature, living on the lake and in the forest, that we decided to stay. Not once have we thought it was a bad decision.
It’s hard to paint when you travel so frequently, and even harder when you have no money and no possessions. During our time overseas I set my creative outlet to putting words down on paper, and discovered not only a knack for stringing words together to form an image, but a sheer pleasure in telling stories. It wasn’t until we returned to the states that I realized the stories I wanted to tell here naughty stories of sexual fantasy.
So it has begun. I still have a regular full-time job, but I work hard every day to put pen to paper (or fingertips to keyboard in this digital age) in the hopes of one day being able to write as a profession. I want to thank each and every one of you for supporting my dreams and goals. Your comments and reviews keep me working harder every day.
Keep up with my blog for updates, and until I see you again. Be fine to everyone.
