Art - one of my happy places .....

Sunday, June 08, 2014

I was reminiscing the other day going back through some drawings I did as a teenager...I didn't keep many but this was just a few I did in art at high school.  From my first year in school when I was only 6 I could paint a landscape in acrylics and ink... Our teacher was beyond extraordinary...there was only 19 children at our school so it was more like a large family then a school but he taught us the basics and with encouragement and loads of love we painted to our hearts content... He touched my life and I dreamed of being an art teacher or commercial artist. I missed him so much when I left primary school and as a very shy person high school was definitely not my happy place.  Going from 30 students when I left primary school to 900 at our high school...Art was still my love but when I left school at 16 I couldn't afford to finish a commercial art course ....  I still love creating as you know and I hope that one day I can put a little more of my design and art skills to the test.... Maybe sooner rather then later !!!

“Every day I discover 
more and more 
beautiful things. 
It’s enough to drive one mad. 
I have such a desire 
to do everything,
my head is bursting with it.”
