We’re Blushing

“I’ve really enjoyed the class. I didn’t know that I could paint anything recognizable. Even though I’m not as good as some, I am so proud of the paintings that I have done so far. It is good for me to set the time aside to paint, otherwise I probably wouldn’t find the time at home.”
