I find it hard to believe that my first ever painting was this fish in oil paints. My mother told me to give painting up as a bad job 😢 I nearly did too.
But due to the encouragement from my online friends I persevered and kept practicing, it is true that the more you do something the easier it gets.
My fish never dried, weeks after when I threw it in the skip it was still wet! I will never forget this fish and every so often I remember to look at this photograph of it and thank my friends for all their encouragement and belief in me. 😉
I was awake from 5am this morning and decided to get up and start a painting which I’ve kept going back and doing it a bit more all day.
I was looking at mum’s photo which is on my desk beside my computer screen wondering what she would say 🤔 hmm, she would have probably said I’ve never seen a sky that colour or waves like those and she would have been right, but then she usually was! 😂🤣
