As some of you know, I’ve been getting my Fine Art Certificate at Otis, just plugging along, taking one class at a time, partly for the pure joy of it, partly because I know all of it will enrich me as an overall artist – as a burgeoning director – even as a writer – maybe someday as a children’s storybook author/illustrator. Or who knows? Fine artist! 🙂 Churchill didn’t start painting ’til he was forty!
Regardless, it enhances the way you appreciate the world around you.
A huge milestone for me this past week was my selling my first water color!
“You have created beauty on the page, something to be enjoyed. The simple curves and bends of your sunset painting are the difference between “cold facts” and “warm feelings. I had to put my dog down last month, have recently gone through a divorce and am now providing 24/7 hospice home care for my terminally-ill father and I have been gazing at your painting for the past fifteen minutes and it has just filled me with peace. A calm. I know that this difficult time will pass but I want to remember it as a time of growth as opposed to loss. Please keep painting. I love your work.”
