off to a painting class today

Monday, January 07, 2013

Just checking in with all my sparks buddies. I am taking a oil painting class for 4 days. Should be fun. I haven't picked up a paint brush in like 30 years or so.....and this is a person who at one time won art awards. I know crazy. But I went down the path of the business world wanting to make money instead of using my art tallent. It sure is going to be weird.
Hope all my sparks buddies have a great day.

    Have fun, Peanut!
That's the best thing about retirement-
we now have the time to explore new interests- old or new.

    Ever notice how easy it is to set aside things we love to do... for decades... and then forget to reach into storage to enjoy what we do love to do? Kudos, Sallie!! The Inner Sallie releases her Artiste Within today! Wonderful!!!

    Oh, have fun!

My mother stopped painting to raise her kids and never went back (she used to teach oil painting to adults) After her passing we found some of her paintings - she was so talented...

So glad you are going back emoticon
