The old proverb, "A shared joy is a greater joy.' is so very true! Over the last several months, I've been sharing my love of painting with a group of awesome kids that make my week brighter every time they come to my studio to paint. It all started when one young girl wanted 'painting lessons' which then led to a whole bunch of kids - all from her same neighborhood!
For anyone who enjoys teaching , no matter what the topic might be, there's great joy in being able to share that knowledge with those who are eager to learn and willing to put in some well applied effort to learn. These kids are so extraordinary, always bringing and sharing their smiles, as they progress through creating such incredible little masterpieces as these shown above.
The 'Gum Ball Machine' was really challenging, with all the intricate shading in those gum balls! But just look how they turned out! And you can see my smile! I'm grinning like a proud mama!
Welcome! Glad you're here! This little spot is where I share thoughts, writings and verses that fuel my life, my marriage, and my art. My desire is to offer up hope and grace and help make your life feel a bit lighter.
