I retired in January of this year, we sold our house and moved at the end of March. I wanted to take classes and paint again. So I've enrolled in a class.
It's like I had to start all over again. My first few painting were what I call "wipers". I'm never going to keep them or show them. But even though it's frustrating, it's also the most fun I've had in years.
So I'm going to let it all hang out and keep a track of my journey. I hope that by next year I'll be able look back and see that I've made progress.
