Painting is So Much Fun!

Painting is Fun,
No Matter How Many Come!

Gary is a good friend of mine and last week he came to the Community Art Center of Switzerland County 
in Vevay, Indiana to paint this fun beach scene.  

Gary is all in for fun and for learning.
He listens and works hard to understand 
and follow directions.  
Because of that, he always does a great job.

This is his fun flip flop and beach scene.


Some of the things learned in this class were:
  1. Creating distance in the sky, water and sand,
  2. How to paint a weathered fence,
  3. How to draw and paint the flip flops
  4. How to paint distant birds,
  5. How to let go and have fun.

That last part is often hard for people to do.

Letting go, quit comparing yourself to someone else,
have fun can be so hard.

Why do we make it so hard?

Our insecurities grab a hold of us 
and start whispering in our ears:
"You're not as good as he is"
"You can't do this"
"Who do you think you are to think you can paint"

Ever hear any of that going on in your head?


Stop that voice!

Tell that voice to go away!!!

Don't let that voice steal your joy!

Join us for our next class
and leave "the voice" at home!
