Taking a break from pottery today to attend Kellie Newsome’s one-day Vibrant Portraits Workshop at Alabama Art Supply.
It has been years since I painted. Not at all sure why I haven’t gotten back to it before now. One day I stashed away my brushes and palette knives and paints and my water buckets and palettes and papers and canvases, thinking at the time that I would be right back in a day or two to begin again.
Now, 25 years later, I’m wondering where the time has gone and why I haven’t, before now, caved to my yearnings to return to my brushes. Life happens, I suppose, and I can only say that mine has been filled with love and joy and blessings beyond measure. No complaints here.
So I take a little trek off the beaten path today to attend what looks to be a fun and color-filled workshop. Looking forward to the smells of paint and to the camaraderie of fellow artists who, perhaps like me, have been away too long. Will be a fun day with or without a finished product. It’s the journey, you know, that counts.
