Hi Everyone! Today is the first day of my blog site so I thought I would tell you a little bit about myself. My name is Bonnie, and I am married to an absolutely wonderful man, Armin. Between us, we have 4 grown kids and 2 grandkids (which keep us pretty busy!). Oh, and I can't forget our four-legged kid (cat) Riley.
This year I have had the opportunity to return to my passion for art. When I was little, I always had a pad and pencil in hand,
drawing anything and everything. When I went to Jr High and High School (many years ago!) , I enrolled in as many art classes as I could fit in my schedule. Soon after I graduated though, I was married, then my children were born. I didn't seem to have time for my drawing between raising a family, working, moving around with the military and so on.
Well, needless to say, now the kids are gone, the house is quiet, and I have the time to start painting again. My husband, knowing how much I missed art, surprised me with an easel, paints, pencils, paper, etc last Christmas! It was perfect. I was a little nervous at first, being away from it so long. I didn't know if I had totally lost my skills, and I don't like to fail. Again, my husband was right there to support me, push me, and help me get back into it. And so I've had a busy year exploring my skills.
I have taken a couple watercolor classes, and even entered two of my paintings at a members show at our local museum. It's been a fun journey following my dreams, and I hope to have success with my work.
Thanks, talk to you soon.
