Just try it!

Who would think I could draw or paint? I sure didn’t! Then, I saw a beautiful portrait in the NYT and felt the urge to paint it. The inclination caught me off guard….Really? I am suppose to paint? I follow the hunch and off I go and stock up on art supplies.

I paint my version of the portrait. I post it on Facebook and folks are encouraging. Then my instincts say try charcoal. Really? Once again, I head to a store and a generous young man gives me a quick beginner “how to.” Now, I’m hooked! Everyday I can’t wait to draw or paint. It feeds my soul!

Here’s the thing…..when you feel an urge to try something new….go for it! There’s no telling where it will lead. I’ll continue to update this page with my newest experiments!
