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"
