Painting spring during snow storm feels really great
I am receiving plenty of e-mails about painting and art classes. Many potential students come straight to the studio-gallery, as well. No doubt, there’s interest in creation and self-accomplishment, there’s a need to express our artistic side and our hidden potential. We all have some dream which can easily come true. All we have to do is JUST GO FOR IT. Sounds very simple, doesn’t it?
However, there are people who will start attending classes and become great artists and decorators, who won’t be looking any further because they have found themselves in painting; and there are those who will keep talking about how much they love art and how much they would like to learn painting or drawing, or both, but this will never happen because it’s just a talk. As we know, talk costs nothing, and basically is worth nothing, too. Whatever our intentions, everything requires some effort. It is amazing to find out that some beginners thought they’d learn to paint within some 1 or 2 classes, which means they allowed for this miracle to happen about 3 hours. Some are surprised that painting actually is a lot of work, intense focusing, thinking and trying.
Groups are very different. I am happy that along with students who quickly drop in and out there are always the serious and devoted ones who will stop at nothing and achieve what they came here for: the RESULTS.
It seems the adult acrylic painting group students are just like that: focused, committed and disciplined. The Wednesday group was a bit too large, thus, I had to start the Tuesday acrylic painting group, as well.
It was a pleasure to see how satisfied everyone was with the previous painting we just finished. I chose a simple spring scene this time. It came out so good probably because we all are longing for spring in our hearts.
We are using chalk to mark the spots for adding details, this time for trees
Besides, what can be nicer than painting a warm spring scene when outdoors is a snow storm how it recently happened? It is unbelievable how fast the time disappears when we are painting.
Some people compare the painting process with a deep meditation: getting lost in colors, shapes and imaginative scenes takes our mind to a meditative state.
Tuesday group: that was a happy painting session
Pictures are taken fairly late, light might have been better, however, all paintings looked very good in reality
Wednesday acrylic painting group: this was their first painting for two ladies in this group
All paintings lined up: I wish I had a special place where to display them
We just started a nature scene with blossoming apple trees, that definitely will make great paintings.
