Nuthatch Painted Box
I just love to paint! It's a passion I've had since 4th grade. It all started when I came home one day and my mother was busy painting a picture of a tree that was in our backyard. I had never seen her paint before and was so surprised how beautiful her painting was! It was at that moment I decided I would learn how to paint too! I have great memories of the days a group of us took lessons with a woman in town. We would sit in her wonderful solarium, paint and chit chat with each other! We all learned alot over those years - our teacher was wonderful and very patient!!
After high school, it had been years before I had time to break out my brushes again. I had my own children this time! My problem is that I love to create in many different ways. I shouldn't call it a problem, or an addiction, but I need to always be creating something --- reading many of your profiles I think many of you are the same way!! So inorder to do one thing, I have to put aside another and that's what happened to my painting.
