Sometimes painting a magical moment in nature borders on appearing tacky. Lost are the deliberate strokes of my new plan, and something else burst forth, all frothy and pastel coloured. It was fun though, and the journey continues.
There is something exhilarating about painting – the whole creative process, the learnings and the discoveries, and always – the challenges. I started painting in watercolour when the children were leaving home. A few years later, my artist mother suggested oils, and it has become a passion. I share my journey with this blog as I stretch myself with the exhuberant intention of painting daily.
