Not too long ago.... much by accident, I discovered I could draw!!
It was a huge surprise.... I guess I'd never tried.... so I never knew.
The moment I realised that I could recreate an image was at my daughters community art class.
Much by accident.
When the course started I asked if I could stay .... my daughter was a few years younger than the minimum age for the course but they had made an exception allowing her to join, over protective mum that I am... I didn't feel comfortable just leaving her with a group of older (some teenagers) children and adults she didn't know.
The lovely ladies at the centre were so welcoming and happy for me to stay. Any concerns melted away in an instant, this was a special and friendly community.
Trying to blend in with the furniture and go unnoticed I was a total failure! I didn't want to disrupt the class but I have always thought artist were very fascinating to see in action, this opportunity proved too irresistible to resist! I absorbed every moment like a sponge... a light was sparking inside of a very dark and numb unexploreD nook of my brain!
The lovely staff welcomed me with kindness and a hot cup of tea! From that moment on, I have learnt so much, formed beautiful friendships and met many wonderful people along the way. I still stay at every lesson (try and keep me away!) and enjoy every minute of every session!!
My favourite part of the lessons are seeing all the children develop and express themselves in an artistic way... there is always a real buzz of creativity in the air... many of the finished pieces have been world class to say the least!
Since that first class I observed.... I have tried as much as possible to get my feelings and ideas down on paper or canvas..... Publishing my work on my facebook page.... it didn't take long to get noticed.
The Secrets out!!
