My friend, Janet, has been going to Barbara's art class for a couple of years now, and has become quite accomplished in her chosen medium, acrylics. When I casually expressed an interest in water colors, Janet twisted my arm and convinced me to come to class with her. So, at the end of March, I signed up for the class and started attending the once-a-week two-hour sessions. If nothing else, it gives Janet and me some quality time together every week.

I've moved on, now, to drawing-and-shading. My first shading exercise was a grapefruit. And then this rose, which I started last week and finished in class yesterday.
I'll never be a Grandma Moses, or (for my Alaskan friends) a Rie Munoz, but I'm enjoying the challenge. Retirement is such fun!
