Learning to Paint

Although I am an artist, I don't know how to paint. So, this year I am going to learn how to paint. I have dabbled in the past, but I am learning in earnest this time around. My teacher is Corre Alice, who owns an art gallery in Cumberland. There are three of us in the class at various different levels. The classes are interesting and fun. Today we got to pick a word out of a bunch in a bowl and then had to start painting from the image we got in our mind of that word. My first word was "growth" followed by "breeze", "tadpoles" and "springtime". Here is the painting I did.

My second painting, below, was done after I pulled out the word "hopscotch". 

A great way to spend a Friday afternoon!
