We all had to start somewhere.
Remember I started painting over 20years ago, I did take classes for several years and mainly thats where I learned to paint. I have my own techniqes that I am sure the pros would not approve but if it looks goods to me and it passes my eye then I go with it . I mainly use books for patterns and then I usually go with colors that I like.
Remember if you do not enjoy it and it becomes like work then it is no longer any fun to do it.
Painting is one of those things that can make time go by and troubles put aside for the time you are doing them
I too like xmas and I have hundreds of books and I have a lot of the old authors and so far I have not found some of the new ones as good as the old authors but the painting now a days is more decorative thatin the past.
the old country look I guess is gone. I am practicing with my new camera and I will start sending when I think I am ready.
Well am going to sisters 60th anniversary party so must get ready. enjoy being here with you girls and will talk again later. carolyn
