About twenty five years ago I started an arts course at what used to be known as TAFE (Technical and Further Education). I was spurred to enrol after being involved in a community based learning centre – where I was learning how to make pottery – by wheel and hand. I wanted to learn more so I enrolled in the arts course – primarily to do more pottery but as part of the course I was require to complete other art units – I did enjoy some of the classes – especially the mixed media work, the print making, water colour etc I enjoyed the parts of the course I completed. The story is then put on hold for quite some time.
Then last week a friend of mine who has recently started producing some amazing paintings (one she made for my office – of proteas , another she made for our sitting room – a pink cow in a dot style – which has ow been entered in an art competition! ) wonderful work, any way I digress…my good friend suggested we have a painting day and drove 4 hours to our place and unloaded her car full of blank canvases and painting paraphernalia – what a great day I had. (My good friend was very patient and enthusiastic) The flame has been reignited. It is such good fun. I am grateful to have such a talented and passionate friend who is happy to share her creativity with me.
This is my work in progress. 🙂
