I have always loved being creative and since a small child have moved from one project to the next with great enthusiasm. Now that my children are all grown up, I now have more time on my hands and find that I ache to just be able to express myself through my artwork.
I have neglected this part of my life lately and constantly felt like something was missing no matter how happy I was feeling. My very supportive husband decided to give me a kick in the rear end to get me back on track and this years Christmas present was a table-top easel, paints, brushes, canvasses, various other tools & equipment and for me, the most exciting of all, a 5 week course with a talented local lady artist.
I am starting this course on 4 January (what a lovely start to 2014) and I really hope that this will give me the knowledge and confidence I need to put the images & emotions that are in my head into my artwork. That is why I say "this is for me".
