I’ve had a few health challenges this week but nothing lifts my spirits like painting especially painting with a group of sociable lovely ladies talking about Life Love The Universe and everything as we dab away
It was a small class at Cheryl’s studio PAINTBOX’s first paint and sip for the year (www.paintboxart.com.au)
I discovered Cheryl and I were of a similar vintage and actually had taught at some of the same private colleges in the area me as a primary classroom music teacher on contract and Cheryl as art teacher .Our paths possibly even crossed
I was keen to let loose with the paint agian and paint something not directly concerned with being images for use in a storybook about guinea pigs. Oh the unfettered joyous freedom of it all.
The ladies had chosen a lovely floral pic as inspiration with a lot of scope for exploration and playing with colour and plenty of room for open ended interpretation .
I was pleased with my first painting in months and my first painting for 2021 .Not too many of my paint and sip efforts actually end up being displayed and languish in storage .but I like this one and have put it up at home .
