I thought I would share with you a little about my new hobby, painting! As you can see, I am not a very good painter but I am going to keep practicing for two reasons: even though I am not a very good painter, I am enjoying painting because it relaxes me and two, I can see that I am improving. I still have a long way to go before I show my paintings to my friends but that is okay because I know I am making progress. Learning to paint is a lot like learning to speak English. It can be difficult at times, but I know it can also be rewarding if you do not give up. The key is to ENJOY THE PROCESS! And NEVER GIVE UP! As I paint more pictures, I will post them here, hopefully you will be able to see some improvement just as I see improvement in your English speaking abilities. Keep practicing!
