Trying Art

I went to Chester Nova Scotia for an art lesson with the lovely Emma Fitzgerald, artist and author of several books. I picked up so many cool tips and encouragements. Let the art come out. Talk to yourself like a friend. Don’t worry too much about perspective. (In fact I’m pretty sure Emma said to ignore perspective.) I loved to hear these gentle encouragements. I felt completely comfortable in this class. Unjudged. Unhurried. Lifted up.

Here are some simple works I have done since.

My front door. (Maybe wouldn’t paint the window black next time.) I’d like to think my house is a bit more welcoming than this. It is!
I enjoy taking liberties with colour: Our car is actually blue. Our roof is actually grey.

Thanks for joining me on this little adventure into watercolour and ink.

  1. Hello madame artiste. I love the purple roof on the house, and I like all the paintings, and love the color. I need to know – is this your very first time painting ?

    1. Hi Sandy! Thank you so much for visiting and for commenting. Besides painting in grade 9 art class a bit, nope, never painted before.


    1. Everyday brings opportunity to learn. I remember a big sis who would be constantly teaching me about kindness and empathy…and she still is. Thanks for being here, Annie.


    1. Thank you. It is wonderful to receive your comment. I was very fortunate to have a wonderful art workshop that just basically spoke to me.
