I have begun taking art classes at Michael’s under an award winning artist (Helena Conti Hatch… waiting for her site to go up for link). Here is my first painting. Titmouse on Birdfeeder, acrylic on canvas board.
The study was one of my photographs meshed with another to form the complete image. There is a lot I would do different, but I learned a lot from this one.
It’s now hanging in my daughter’s apartment. I think she claimed it to encourage me to continue painting. The entire family says I am happier when I am creating something. My husband specifically says I’m happier since I have been going to art class.
