After Pattie picked out two mundane items from around the apartment she arranged them wonderfully in my shadow box. I like having her pick out items for me to paint because I would normally pick out something that was simple to paint and would not challenge me. I remember once she picked out a black and white stuffed animal, I would have never picked that out because I knew that trying to paint something black and fuzzy would be super difficult. But, I painted it anyway, and I learned a lot from it.
Tonight I learned that the last five months of constant drawing has really paid off. I drew the glasses once in paint and I didn’t redraw anything twice. I feel very accomplished with this painting and I don’t think my accomplishments are wasted in the slightest on the subject matter.
