Not Just Painting for Myself
When I first started on my journey as an artist, I painted only for my own pleasure. Then I started selling those works, and sometimes doing commissions where would paint what the customer wanted rather than simply what would bring me pleasure. In the past 6 months, I’ve added another element of my painting experience, painting for classes.
Painting for classes
In recent months I’ve started giving painting classes and painting nights, and creating paintings just for those classes, paintings that I felt were simple enough for people to follow along and paint with me, provided I gave instruction. Some of my classes have been big, some small. Some of the paintings I’ve created for classes were very successful as class samples, some just didn’t prove easy enough for beginners to follow along with. They’ve all been fun, and I really enjoy teaching.

The Ultimate Blog Challenge
On another topic, I’ve been wanting to be more regular in my blog posting, and to that aim, I am taking part in the Ultimate Blog Challenge once again. It is a challenge where you commit to write a blog post every day for a month, or at least 30 posts over the course of the month. I am behind because I didn’t start on July 1st, in fact I didn’t start until July 6th. I am planning that most of my posts will be on this blog, but I am also going to count posts on my other blogs as well, so if I post 5 times on my other blogs, and blog every day here for the rest of the challenge, I’ll catch up and make the challenge! 🙂
