paintings and firsts

i sat down and painted the other day as in paint on canvas, painting a picture - and i must say that this post is definitely a first for me!

i always say that i am not a painter. the uncertain medium, the multitude of many more art supplies to acquire, and a general dislike for paint under my nails has kept me away from painting for a very long time. but... then i took the paint something workshop and i had so much fun. i happily had an entire day to myself last friday and surprising to me, the first thing i wanted to do was paint. this is mid process, so everything is a bit rough, but i had so much fun, that the outcome wasn't really as important to me as the process.

surprise, you definitely can teach old dogs new tricks!
