Art Class

I had my first art class today. I almost hyperventilated while I was waiting for it to start watching all the other students enter the room. Today, the instructor wanted to get a feel of where we were all at so he gave us a black watercolor paint and a paintbrush. Then he handed over a black and white photo he selected out of a book. Go!

During the break I had to take a moment in the restroom to remind myself not to look at anyone else's artwork.

It was fun! And as long as I keep my eyes on my own paper I think I can remain calm and breath.


PS This is a picture of my first piece.

Climb On

Nathan had his first wall climbing class today at the YMCA. He enjoyed it very much. He even cheered me on to reach the top.

Step 4


I finally have all my supplies organized and ready to use. Previously I was working on the floor in a giant messy pile of papers and paint and trash. I now have a suitable workspace. I built this desk from a $15 door I found in the basement of a antique shop. The glass topper I ordered is being delivered today.

About Last Night...

Balls to the Wall- 2010

The year of the Tiger. I am super optimistic for the New Year. I am ready for adventure and excitement and learning. I'm sure there will be plenty of struggles, but I will approach them with a new attitude. I'm not super big on resolutions, but I do have a few plans for this year.

#1- Do something with my Art. Submissions, Sales, and Improvement

#2- Get as physically strong as I can be.

#3- Sail. As much and as often as possible.

#4- Enjoy everyday as if it is my last.

Happy New Year Friends!!!!

one last resolution...
Keep my car cleaner. Yikes!
