I love to paint – craft projects, walls, fences, houses, whatever – I enjoy it. After a professional career in Corporate America, I find painting relaxing. It provides a beginning, a middle, and an end. When you are done, you step back and feel a sense of satisfaction in a job well done.
Painting with my granddaughter is the most fun of all. And, we are so lucky to have a talented friend who can do just about any craft out there in addition to being a wonderful painter. Because she teaches crafts and painting in a variety of settings, she is a busy lady.
So, my granddaughter and I love it when she has time for us to have a painting class. The other day we went to visit her and had a good time as usual. We paint. We laugh. We talk. We catch up on family news. We laugh. We paint some more. It makes for a great morning.
At each lesson, we do a different project. This time we painted a funky chicken on a slate tile. We had leftover slate tiles from the farm-house kitchen so we took some with us. She provided the example, supplies and thankfully her expertise.
Life really is good when you can spend a morning with a special friend, enjoy your granddaughter’s company, learn to paint something new, and laugh out loud while doing it.
We’re already planning our next painting project – sheep. We’re going to do a primitive painting project that will include some sheep. And, without a doubt, another good time will be had by all. Can’t wait!
