Courageous

Posted on Apr 15, 2015 in Creativity

AutumnI met with a lot of courageous people yesterday. Some are brand new into art. It takes a lot of courage to sign up for your first art class as an adult. Good for you! Others have done art for awhile, some for years. They still need courage because they are now looking to move away from realism and grow their own unique style. That's not easy either - but it is fun. Thanks to each of my wonderful students for the spirit of adventure that you bravely bring to art class. Happy painting!
