Yahoo, I'm drawing

Yes, I actually drew this. For me, this is a moment! I have been practicing drawing and painting loose. I haven't mastered water yet but I'll keep trying.

First Snow on Farm

I'm painting again and this one was fun. I drew the picture, spattered it with masking fluid and after it was dry, painted the painting. Then I removed the masking fluid and Voila!, Snow!

Still Painting- River Glorious

I had my second class yesterday. How am I doing? I didn't think I would like to paint this free and loose but I'm loving it. I love the colors and the many shapes. Even though I call myself a beginner, my teacher, Jan Schaffer, says I'm not. WooHoo! It took me a year to call myself an artist so this is a giant step forward. I am calling this painting River Glorious from an old English Hymn. "Like a river glorious is God's perfect peace"

Loose Painting - WIP

This is my work in Progress that I am doing with my new teacher. I have a lot to do on it but I wanted to post the painting as I paint.
Life is good here in Las Vegas with some minor bumps in our road. Painting is my salvation and it does my soul good to paint. I'm working on finding balance in my life and somedays it just feels good to do nothing but paint or draw. I find a connection with my Higher Power when I still myself enough. My Mantra is "Be Still and Know that I am GOD". My little brother told me "Wet the paper and let GOD do the painting". Good advice brother Jim. Love You!
