I am aware that I am less than some people prefer me to be,
but most people are unaware that I am so much more than what they see.

A few paintings...

Still in training at the Bob Ross Art Workshop. Love it! It has been very, very hard on me physically but I wouldn't trade it for the world. I am no great artist, that is for sure, but here are a few paintings that I have worked on over the past couple weeks...

(I'm sure this goes without saying, but these images are copyrighted by law and may not be used in any way. Thanks!)

I have to say that this certification is about the same as the first...I'm having good days and bad days. Florals Cert is more technical, though, so it is tougher in some ways than Landscapes. You can paint a happy tree on a hill and if it looks like a tree on a hill in any way shape or form, you're usually A-OK. But if your pansies look like giant mustached flower monsters? NO. Just no.

I swear I laugh my butt off every time I look at my pansies...they are THAT funny. My roses are a little creepy too. I have a LOT of work ahead of me before I am worthy of teaching this technique...that is for sure. But I have hope that I will eventually get it.

Four days left. Then home again to the Gulf Coast. I haven't ignored our oil spill situation, just haven't had time to blog about it yet...I will eventually.

Hugs to all.
