Here's what we produced:
I don't know at what point in my life the artist in me left but I really want her back!
As Maia and I painted together, I was amazed at her confidence and how she went at the work without hesitation. She dipped her brush and fingers in the paints and applied it all to the paper resulting in, what seems to me, a very beautiful and energetic composition! I sat for some time staring at my paper before I could even choose a color! I have a feeling Maia is going to be my most inspiring instructor.
In the meantime, I'm thrilled to actually recognize the figures I had intended to produce and I consider this a promising step forward as it had never really occurred before! Obviously, I have a long row to hoe, but, you know, hope is the thing with feathers...
