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.

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.

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!
