ahhh..painting. i love it. take a white, clean canvas and whatever it is that you feel in your soul gets brushed upon it. people hang part of you in their homes. how cool is that? more than jewelry-making, painting allows me to be more expressive. i have to admit that there is so much more that i want to learn, need to learn. i want to take this summer e-course, badly!!! It is taught by Claudine Hellmuth and she is awesome. i think she can teach me to expand. i promised myself that this year has to be my year of fearlessness. the year of chance and change. so here i go..slowly taking steps and it's feeling so good.
