I really love it when you send photos of your paintings. Any paintings are okay. They don’t even have to be my designs. I just enjoy seeing what you all are doing. It gives me a sense of community, and I think everyone is inspired by seeing what others are painting.
In the “old days” I spent many hours at my local “tole” shop just sitting and chatting with the other painters, making friends and making bonds. Looking around the shop at the work that others had done was very motivating and inspiring, making me want to get home and start on the next project. So many of the shops have closed now so we don’t have that so much anymore – that sharing thing. That bonding thing.
That’s why I like to post these photos here on the blog. It’s not bragging. It’s just sharing the joy of painting. After all – isn’t that what it’s all about?
Connie sent me this photo so I’m passing it along to you. She did a lovely job painting this bunny and I know she would love to hear from you. Let’s give it up for Connie! Good job, Connie. And thanks so much for sending the pic.
