I've been missing from this blog and thought today would be a good day to catch up a bit.
Finding time to paint lately and wanting to paint has been a problem for me lately. I guess the cold winter and dreary days have taken a toll. But, finally a few good sunny days and I'm feeling the old creative itch. Someone told me that this picture would be a great painting. I took it several years ago at the cabin and really like the colors so, today I decided to try my hand at it...
first I sketched with a bit of paint and then filling in some color.
It's not finished for sure but I think I've got a good start on it.
It really amazes me sometimes that I had this ability hidden and dormant for so many wasted years. I question why I never took it past the 9th grade art class with Miss Henson. I guess my confidence in myself was so wanting that I had to hide.
Momma was always my champion but I just didn't listen to her sometimes.
It would have been a great thing to share with her.
