In 2004 my two sons offered me art classes as a birthday gift. I was very surprised because I had never attempted art in any form before. I was nervous, but a while later I took up their offer and was pleasantly surprised to find that I enjoyed the challenge, and also pleased that my first efforts were not too bad at all.
For many years I painted in my spare time at home. When I retired I realized I needed more classes to progress. I attended various classes and workshops, and am now being taught by Laura Wenman. She is an excellent teacher, generously passing on her knowledge and techniques to her students.
I really enjoy painting. I am so grateful to my sons!
