It's always been in the back of my mind that at some stage in my life I would attempt painting...so far I have only accomplished a wall or two, but perhaps the time has come to give it a shot...you know..like Monet :)
I've actually held off putting brush to canvas....it's a FEAR thing! What if I really try....and I'm pathetic at it!!!???? gulp.....then what???
I took a couple of lessons ....that was lots of fun. I felt like I was back at primary school..well it was nice to feel young again at least :) The thing was, I needed to decide what style of painting/drawing I wanted to do to continue......well...uumm..daaahh....I dont know! So I didn't go back.
I had to give it some real thought.......
|Does this mean if I follow this thought process I will become the next Monet of the world?? ;)|
Then a 'thought' came to me! I remembered reading an advertisement in a newspaper promoting a 'meet the artist' kind of thing at one of the 'grands magasins'in Paris. I thought it could be rather interesting, as his 'style' appealed to me, fun, whimsical, and oh so french! I didn't go....but I DO remember him
Monsieur Izak Zenou: Fashion illustrator.
What do you think? Like?? I do!
Also thinking I may need some sort of 'drawing' talent! One must start somewhere mustn't one??????
I did a little more research and came across something similar...fun , with a french flair....
