Beck Becoming a Painter



















Arrrggghhh! Each Sat I paint with the PAPC. It takes an grade latte and a good half hour before I jump into each painting. Sometimes trying to begin feels so overwhelming. But I am not going to let fear beat me. Not at painting. Jeesh. We all have to begin somewhere.

Fortunately, you all get to see me grow and progress as a painter. Sometime you may chuckle, sometimes say "hey, I didn't know she could do that" or perhaps just give out an audible "meh".

Here are my last two paintings done in watercolor. The lighthouse was done at the Evanston Lighthouse. The other was in Edgewater at the SW corner of Brwn Mawr and Ravenswood (garden area).

Great job !!
I'm impressed by the lighthouse one. :)

Wow! I'm impressed with your paintings and impressed with your tenacity. Remember the quote from the Lulu Lemon bag..."Do one thing that scares you every day." I think that pretty much rocks.

They are beautiful! I would plunk down cash for the lighthouse one if I had it to remind me of my heritage!
