Look what I found in my stack of paintings that were hiding in a closet-my first watercolor!
I didn't discover watercolors until high school. For a few weeks in art class we were introduced to watercolor painting. Right away I was taken. I loved the way the paint flowed onto the paper. To me it was magical, a whole new way of painting. I had a relative who was a painter, and as a little girl I'd stare straight into his paintings of European streets to study the intricate details. Later I realized that they were watercolors.
I think I'll frame this and put it up in my art room. Kind of like when someone earns their first dollar and puts it in a little frame.
It's fun to look back and see where things started. I studied art in college, but changed to the advertising program. I was afraid I'd be a starving artist! Well, even starting off in advertising, I was starving in Los Angeles! My career took a turn and I ended up as a production manager for many years and my art was put on the back burner. I didn't pick up a paint brush until after my children were born, when they were old enough we started drawing and painting together.
Hope you enjoyed my little trip down Memory Lane. Have a wonderful weekend!
