Going to Make a Painter out of me yet....

well maybe not :p I will be the first to admit, I am not a painter. Give me a pencil or some ink and I can draw almost anything. Hand me a brush with some paint and you might be lucky to have any of the paint actually end up on the canvas and not in my hair or up my nose :p But that is one reason I am taking the painting class, to get practice at painting, and fingers crossed have something at the end I will not be completely embarrassed to hang on the wall.

I had some oil painting lessons years ago (I think I was around 12 o.0 ack that makes me feel old :p), but I got so frustrated with the paint I threw the brushes down and just used my fingers. Things worked a lot better after that lol For some reason the teacher was a little pissed off I was using my fingers with the paints, hmm couldn't be that some were toxic could it? :p

I have a few weeks to work on this and the other painting on the huge canvas, so will have updates every once and awhile so we can all laugh at my painting attempts :p Looking around our little house, I can't actually see a space where I can put the big canvas...hmmm maybe hang it on the ceiling?

Good luck with your painting. I never thought about drawing and painting needing different skills.

Oh yes you will. And guess what, you get to do corrections too! Won't that be a thrill compared to cp. This is looking intriguing and mysterious. And, while I'm here, thanks so much for you visits and comments on my very sparse little blogposts, it's very appreciated right now.
