Ok, so, I went to the Saturday Painting workshop and I LOVED it!! I don't know why I waited so long to do this. Oh, yeah, I have been a little busy raising kids, but, you know, I wish I had done it anyway. Fit it in somehow. I learned so much in just one class, plus, it was a very relaxing, fun day to get away and do something I really like by myselves. Well, I was by "myself" because I left my critic and my taskmaster at home...lol.
The class happened to be fabulous because, for one, I had a great teacher. A working Artist/Painter/Teacher. She was very patient and wonderful and I learned so very much about paint and approaching painting, especially as a beginner. I also learned that this may be a little more "spensive" than collage. But, just like a cook needs the best ingredients to make a fabulous dish, so does the painter. So, I bought some real "butter" with my 30 percent off coups they gave us and I am going to be doing Lots more painting.
Thank you all for encouraging me to keep going and not get discouraged. I am glad I got through my "nutty" and now I am pressing on.
I have more things to share, but I am oh so exhausted today from several things I had to tend to today...I will be writing more soon on little things I picked up that have already made a difference in how I'm approaching the whole painting experience. Thanks for listening my friends. For those of you that wrote and said you've been wanting to paint or take a class too...please....do it now!!! Don't wait~it will be worth it!! xoxo lia
