Wren44- it was a major accomplishment for me!

I have been learning, however, that a lot of what I thought I couldn't do with my art was the result of me giving up too early on pieces. I somehow got the impression early on that people just drew great pictures start to finish, but I started to watch more in depth process videos on art and learned that each piece has it's own development process...I was just quitting on mine during thier akward teenage phases Winking

I also started participating in art challenges. Drawing with constraints and deadlines has helped me improve greatly.

While on a CASTING FOR RECOVERY Retreat a few months ago, while standing in the Connetquot River looking to catch my first fish, I was inspired by the view. I took a photo and it made me realize why wasn't I doing more of what I love to do as in taking photos and painting! After the weekend, I found a local painting class and voila! I present my painting of "The Connetquot River".

To photograph is therapy for my soul. I wasn't allowed to submit a picture otherwise I would have done so.

This is really a great thread. I saw so many beautifull realizations !

Art is what gives me energy and allows me to express my feelings. I never took any lessons, so I'm not as talented as most of you are. But still, I enjoy painting (aquarelle and acryl mainly) and trying lots of different crafts.

My son as a teenager (a few years ago already) :

Abstract : first painting after I was diagnosed.


I still have to finish this one. Which means I have to go back to Provence next summer.


Next challenge for now : my daughter asked me to realize a reverse painting on plexiglass !

I agree, you definitely will have to go back to Provence. I'm curious what your daughter will do with the reverse painting on plexiglass. It might be easy to do. You can draw on one side, paint on the other, and just wipe off the guidelines. Perhaps I shall try this.

HegeKonstance, Sometimes it won't load a photo because it's too large. Perhaps you can save it to a smaller size and try again. I hope so because we'd love to see it.

I am so glad this thread exists. I love to paint and draw and like many others have said art has helped me through my BC journey. Every year I paint a holiday card to send to friends and family. This year I painted an oil pastel painting that represents my breast tumor. My tumor is called a phyllodes which is Greek and means leaf like because the tumor grows in the shape of a leaf. So here is my leaf. I also included different aspects of my path report all the crazy things the tumor cells were doing. I had fun putting the colors together.

Ok I might sound like I have lost my mind, but I like being able to turn my BC into art.

Hugs and Love to all,

Sara

What Feline said. Do you have it copied to make into cards? Some of the people in my watercolor class have done that with their better paintings. It looks like fun.
