Painting Class

Wednesday, August 19, 2009

I want to thank everyone for leaving sweet, encouraging comments regarding my breakup. Breaking up was incredibly difficult, but I'm starting to heal and get excited about the future. I've read some articles about how to recover from a breakup and everything I've read has said to try new things.

I've been trying several new things as part of my August goals. I've been learning to cook, developing a budget, setting up savings accounts, and working out. I'm working on improving myself to become a better person. But all that self improvement has made me yearn to do something fun.

Ever since reading about a painting class that Ashley took, I've been trying to find something similar where I live. After searching online, I found My Spirited Art. I begged Megan to take the Contemporary Landscape class. We had a blast!

The painting teacher had a mural of the Five Elements of Design in the studio. I told her that she was missing the element, color. She didn't believe me and said that "hue" not "color" was the correct element. I didn't argue with her, but my Basic Design professor drilled the Elements into me, and I will never, ever forget them. The next day, I got an email from the teacher saying that I was right about the elements of design, she was wrong and that I deserved a free painting class! I can't wait to take another fun class!

  1. I'm so glad you had fun! Even though I paint on my own, there's something relaxing about being walked through a painting. Also, I couldn't help but laugh--Mr. Smathers, right?!

  2. cool painting!! very War of the Words... :c)

  3. How fun! I've never done anything like that. I painted pottery when I was 10 days overdue with my son, but I don't think a dog dish is anywhere near what you did. Lol.

    Glad you are doing well with the breakup.

  4. Good for you for saying something and getting that free class!
    WOMAN power!


  5. Beautiful art!

    Also... regarding the breakup, I read the book, "Its called a breakup because its broken" and it helped me SO much.

    Remember that you're doing it for all the right reasons. The future is indeed bright!
