Painting A Day at the Von Liebig

Debbie who hasn't painted in years really 'got' it.
My first Painting A Day Class at the Von Liebig was great. My students just happened to be snowbirds from Massachusetts! I did a demo of the slices of lime and then they did their paintings which turned out very well. Of course we knew some people in common and my girls were very good about bringing their sense of humor and leaving their inner critics AT HOME. I was impressed and we had fun which is the main thing. 
We all have an inner critic telling us how 'not good' we are at what ever it is we might be trying when we step out of the box.  I emphasize shutting down any and all doubt immediately and enjoying the process. Life's a journey not a destination ;)
My next session is in two weeks. Click HERE to sign up and be sure to check out the supply list in the sidebar to the left of the class description. Actually, I put in the link to make it easy.
Be nice to yourself today and enjoy life!
Chris 'kicked it' by including the translucent cup of limes.
Very Brave!

It's great you teach others to paint! One of the best professions in the world, isn't it?) You may find interesting to learn about our Wu Xing School of Painting in Russia, which I write about. Thanks!
