Today’s post comes from Cynthia in Mahtowa
Barbara in Robbinsdale and Plain Jane asked to see photos of them and suggested writing and posting photos here. So, here goes.
I painted often in the late seventies and early eighties, then stopped when my marriage ended and I had to get a day job full time. My time being with and inspired by my animals diminished, while other activities, needs, demands took its place.
I first painted in oils. Then in the early eighties I met a woman whose watercolors I admired, so I began taking lessons with her, then spent time painting with her, building a friendship and learning techniques from her.
Now that I am retired, will I return to drawing and painting? I think about it, but hesitate…fear, perhaps, that the skill is diminished or has atrophied with time? Yet to be answered.
What have you created … and kept?
