My New Hobby

I began a new hobby recently. I’m not really good at it, but I am enjoying myself. I think I might get better with practice, so I have been practicing every day. I have taken up painting with acrylic paints. I’ve had an art set that my Mom bought for me years ago and have always been afraid of failure so never tried until now. I don’t think I’m horrible at it, but I do need a lot of work. I will set up a page that contains all of my paintings to date and add more as I complete them.

I find it relaxing and it does not cause me any pain. I really like that about it. It also keeps me busy so I’m not snacking. That’s worth it’s weight in gold right there.

I am still selling Avon and have, unfortunately, allowed this blog to go to the wayside. I hope that by adding my paintings I will get back to daily posts.

Please take a look at my work and share yours if you paint, I would love to see it and I would also like it if you can offer me any tips or techniques that might not be present in my works. I know there are a lot of mistakes, remember I’m a beginner so be gentle.

I have set up a page, but have not added the photos of my paintings yet. I will try to do that tomorrow. Here is the link:

      I failed years ago and thought I would never try again, but when I finally got up my nerve recently, I was pleased at my courage and the mess that appeared on the canvas. Just get those paints out and go for it, you’ll never know until you do it uninhibited.

      I’m just a beginner so my art is not very good, but I am enjoying doing it. I have posted my paintings under the heading Paintings on my home page. Thanks so much for the encouragement.
