Painting

I signed up for some painting classes through Sarasota County's Adult Continuing Education Program.  Eight lessons for $130 -- can't really find a better deal than that.

The added bonus is that I did learn quite a bit.  I am not planning on quitting my day job and sailing down to the Florida Keys to become  a full time artist by any means.  However, I am finding that I enjoy learning something new and I enjoy painting enough to want to keep working at it.  Eventually I will turn out something I think worthy of hanging on my wall.

Yesterday, the subject was painting boats with a reflection in the water.


One more lesson to go in this series.  Unfortunately the instructor announced that he would not be continuing to through ACE.  I don't know yet whether there will be other classes but I plan on checking that out.

  1. Just learning and improving is fun, getting good enough to sell and move to Key West would be terrific. I don't expect to ever perform at guitar, but it is a blast learning to play.
