This was a fun Theme ~ "Meet Me". If you have followed my blog for any length of time, you know I pitch my tent in the Kitchen! HaHa. So what better "Self Portrait" than me in my favorite spot. Yes, I know my hair is a lot grayer, but when you're the artist, you can make some adjustments...HaHa.
I went back in the archives and found this portrait I did about 10 years ago.
When I was about 8 years old I received my first little tin box of watercolors and one brush. Remember those? I loved the feel of the watercolors on the paper, and never wanted crayons again.
Raising children, being a pastor's wife and working outside the home I really didn't have time to paint and pursue my passion for watercolors for many years.
Basically I'm self taught, through trial and error, but did take a couple of adult classes that really taught me some basics of color and technique.
Most of my first painting were note cards, which I have painted close to 100. With the adult classes I pushed my envelope to paint larger paintings and enjoy hanging those in our home.
Thanks Michael for this theme so we can visit and get to know the other artists in Creative Tuesday. Just click on the CT badge and visit all the others.
