Of the 4 weeks of this class so far I have painted two things that I like. The first painting was a pretty sunflower painting based on the flowers the teacher brought, the second was the abstract from this week.
I was discouraged right out the gate.
And then one of the other students, hearing my discussion with the teacher -- suggested that I switch to my non-dominant hand to paint.
and that was it.
just the right amount of encouragement.
Now I just have to translate that experience to my left side. I hope it's not easier said than done. I think I'm going to paint with my right hand again next week!
I'm calling this painting, "Get Out of my Head!"
Because the quotes are all from famous artists!
Moral of the story, be open and willing to try new things in order to get what you want from your art -- and you probably will!
Thanks for stopping by -- and sorry I haven't posted much this week -- it's been a CRAZY jam packed week. More tomorrow though!
