TICKING OFF THAT 'ONE DAY' LIST
Do you have a 'one day' list? You know, the list of things that one day you'll get around to? My list includes things like learning to play the piano, going on an African safari, getting over my fear of heights (and birds), being a size 12, living overseas etc
But one thing on my list has recently been ticked off. It was "go to painting classes". I didn't want it to say "learn to paint" because I wasn't really sure if I could actually learn to do it but I did want to try.
I've been inspired by various people. One of them is Cath. Cath has studied art for a few years through The Learning Connexion. When I found out that TLC was only a 5 minute drive from my home I knew I had to try. So I enrolled in night classes. I've only had three classes. I've learned some techniques. It's been fun and hard. There are only 3 beginners in the class. The rest are experienced. Some are third year diploma students. Scary. But mostly I've learned that art is whatever you want it to be. If I make it it is art. So here for posterity is one of my very first attempts.
I'm hoping that in years to come I will be able to look back and see that I've got better!
