I've always wanted to take painting lessons. Now that I'm retired, I can! A friend has been taking lessons, and after checking with her, I've now gone twice. Enjoying it, and hopefully I'm not a hopeless case! Our class is once a month, from 9:30 am to 3:30 pm and just a couple of us there, so we get a lot of help. The first picture I didn't get done in that time frame, so finished it at home; but the class yesterday, I finished the picture. I put the first one on as my header picture now for a few days, and here is the second one. Our next picture will be a winter scene. I'm learning the mixing of the oil colors and which brushes to use to get a desired effect. Will have to try my hand here alone now as I get more comfortable.
Do you have something that you've always wanted to try doing, and haven't been able too? Our middle daughter is so talented artistically. Wish she could do this with me. She painted beautiful pictures in art in high school and won some contests then. I think she'd really enjoy this if she had the time.
Each one of us have hidden talents within - waiting to come out. Take a risk and try new things. It's great.
Have a great day!
