I love to draw, and I draw alot. All over everything! But I want to paint and I have not had any classes since Jr. High. I have painted a little in water colors and acrylic, but its been awhile. I have had this blank canvas since last Christmas,,not 2009, but 2008. I finally sketched this cat a week ago. I got brave enough to paint it today. Its not great, I had issues, but it was alot of fun. I so hope to be able to take classes soon. My dream is to do florals in oil. In my head they are sooo pretty and I am just busting at the seams to learn. But until that time I think I will practice and paint cats. I already have a plan and sketch for the next one I want to do. Painting is one of those things that is just practicing over and over and studying color and nature. Training your eyes to see whats there that is overlooked normally.
This weekend has been beautiful, sunny and in the 70's. Flowers are blooming everywhere and the birds couldnt be happier. It was also a great weekend for yard sales. I got a few treasure including these vintage earrings. I got this adorable cat plate from Tillies Attic. Today was our once a month event at Tillies and it was alot of fun. There are some really pretty new things in the store. And lots of chocolate! I hope you all have a great week. Gail
