I am a qualified Nurse recently retired from a highly stressful level and thought I needed to find an experience that has many challenges but also can provide peace and tranquiility at the same time. To this end I thought I would like to expand my knowedge in an area I had never tried before. Art, in particular a watercolour medium.
I have spoken to a number of friends who are artists. They encouraged me to consider this pursuit. I have found that researching and painting pictures from my observations of life and my surroundings to be one of the most enjoyable experiences I have ever had. You look at the sky and surroundings from such a different point of view. Mother nature has so much to show us if we only looked and listened. So I thank my friends who have continued to encourage me to keep experimenting and developing my skills.
