Michelle had a really pretty spot. She wanted to paint the trees and field. It was her first time painting since junior high...yay:) I'm so proud of her for trying. I guess painting can be a little intimidating, the fear of messing it up etc... But I really believe that we are all artists on the inside if we just try.
I had no idea that I loved painting until I was in college. I studied Occupational Therapy and our teacher used various art projects to teach us how to break things down into steps for our patients. It was so exciting to create something...to try and capture beauty. I just fell in love with it. I started painting anything I could. Eventually I took a few community ed classes, but oh how I wish I would have went to art school. My community ed teacher did tell me that if I had went to art school I probably wouldn't be able to tap into my whimsical childlike art style. She said that is something that trained artists can't really do, so in that instance I'm glad I missed it because I like my simple style...it suits me;)
Seriously what was I thinking...burrrrr!!! Oh and don't look at my toe nails that is one area I'm super lazy in;)
So now I can finally say I've painted my church. I know it's the first of many. I absolutely love them. Feels good to cross that off my to-do list. Is there something you've been putting off for a someday??
Have a blessed day.
