November Notes, Day 5

"The Joy of Painting"

I have tonight off of work because I was supposed to go to a painting class.
It was cancelled.
I am very bummed.

I've been doing classes at the local gallery for over a year now.
They only hold them in the winter time, so I always look forward to them.


I think it's releasing that inner artist within me...
Or maybe it's just relaxing painting with a glass of wine...

I enjoyed the classes so much, I bought some art supplies of my own...


And, I have tried to use them from time to time...
Like my quilting fabrics,
Like my beads,
Like my scrapbooking paper...
I think I really just enjoy the creative process,
or I have a little ADD...

Today I was reminded of another inspiration for my creativity...
Bob Ross and the "Joy of Painting."
Did you ever watch this on PBS?

I remember watching this as a kid...
the "Magic Brush"
and "happy little clouds..."

He made it all seem so easy...
and to this day I remember when he
would say the paint colors...
alizarin crimson
and titanium white...

I came across this video and
remembered that joy again...


What's your creative outlet...?

I used to enjoy watching him and his "happy little trees." He made it look so easy!
