Last night I went to my first art class…

It was about just letting the brush express what was inside you…

Naturally I had difficulty with that, so at some point I just discarded the brush and painted with my hands. I’m so glad that we were painting with watercolors.

But discarding the brush for me, I felt it was a breakthrough, I was able to express more freely, it was not about painting objects, though all my paintings are of objects of some type, I just want a more abstract feeling or expressive feeling about them.

I’m not totally happy with what I was painting, but I was more satisfied at the end of the class than I was at the beginning.

Next week another class
