It is important to remember that this young lady (she is 11) just began her Joy of Painting classes a few months back. Apart from the one week workshop where we concentrated on the different strokes, I think today will be her 7th instruction session. I wish that you could sit and watch how easy it is for her now. In fact, she has made so much progress that I am switching her from the youth classification to adult classes. So instead of one hour, pretty basic paintings, she will now be spending 4 hours in a class and will paint larger and more detailed paintings.
And, of course, she is now painting on her own, both on practice and her own creations. One day I will ask if I can do a feature page of those paintings. Here is today’s painting which she completed in about 90 minutes.
