Painting Class

IMG_8340.JPGI have been taking another painting class- this time acrylic- and I am learning all kinds of fabulous things about myself!  For example, I do not take risks, I am sometimes paralyzed by indecision, I am afraid of making a mistake, I focus too much on the end result instead of the process, I don’t enjoy playing in the mud (because of the inevitable clean up- duh!), and I am a perfectionist and maybe even a control freak.  Awesome.  Luckily I have a wonderfully patient teacher who loves the challenge… of me.

Painting is not easy for me but I am starting to make some headway.  Often either with my clients’ homes or my own home, I know what kind of artwork I’d like to see in the space but I have trouble actually finding it- and in the correct dimensions.  I thought it would save time and money if I could just create it myself.  Easier said than done 🙂

I recently finished a piece I hoped would complete my daughter’s bedroom (picture above).  It was nerve-wracking waiting for her to see it.  I really wanted her to love it.  I watched her eyes when I showed it to her and she gleamed!  I felt so proud and happy!

Then Adam suggested hanging the one below in our bathroom.  I would choose something larger but I have to admit it does add something to the room.  I’m going to have to buy some more canvases this week!
