    I take a drawing and painting class on Saturday mornings. It's a 2.5 hour class, but we really only get about 2 hours tops of actual painting. And I never feel like I leave with a finished painting. This one comes close. I had a lot of fun. Very loose and fast.

    Just wanted to share.

    I don't know why it's turned sideways; the original isn't. Let me try again.

    That is better than Bob Ross. I don't mean to step on any ones toes but when you said drawing and painting class I pictured a Bob Ross style - cookie-cutter- pretty landscape. What is the point of painting if you are just copying someone else's work?
    But yours is original, to me that is what "art" is.

    PS - I love Bob Ross, someone on another board I read signs their posts, WWBRD - what would Bob Ross do? Paint a happy little tree.

    God Bless.

    Thanks for all the wonderful comments. I'm 52 (and a half!) and have been painting off and on since high school. More off than on. I studied some in college and since have done a few years here and there of non-academic courses. Mostly I do it because inside of me there is an artist demanding expression.

    In fact, I first got into quilting in the mid 90s after moving to DC from California. In the move, I "lost" my painting studio and had no good place to paint in my new home. So I picked up quilting because of all the colors (which is what I really love about painting, anyway-- color play). Little did I know then that so many of you quilters have sewing rooms the size of good painting studios OR LARGER!!!

    Lynda, the portrait above is oil paint (and yes, from a model). I also work in chalk pastels.

    It's a beautiful painting! But, why is the model wearing clothes? All the classes I took many years ago featured nude models. :shock:
