Thursday is always a special day. The painting class starts a 9:30 am and everyone happy and ready to paint. Today was our last class until we start our fall session on September 10th. Everyone wanting to finish up what they were painting so they can start something new in Sept. Today was Carol's day to "cook". She made a simply delicious Oriental salad and Pot Stickers. Both were terrific but we all wanted to know how to do these Pot Stickers. A tasty dessert finished up the great meal. We all feel so lucky to be part of such a wonderful group. We love the women who run the store and we thank Jennifer, the manager and Guylaine and Kim and our wonderful Roger for all the help they give us. Without them we would be somewhat lost.
I have been an artist for as long as I can remember. I went to college when I was 37 years old. I loved it so much, I was a sponge and absorbed anything and everything about art. I started out wanting to be a portrait artist but ended up using pencil and colored pencils. I made quite a name for myself with my drawings. I won many awards. When I needed a break from that I went into oil sticks and just loved them and again did very well with awards. I finally went back to my oils but always felt frustrated with them I wanted to be free from all constraints, I am now working in acrylics and loving them. So now the sky is the limit. I just want to go and do everything I feel and want to express.
