These are the good folks at my church who participated in the Lenten Painting Retreat I led last month. Didn't they do well?

You know, when I took my first PB lesson on the cosmos flowers, I never would have dreamed that I would ever lead a painting retreat! I put in a LOT of hours to ensure the participants would enjoy themselves and be pleased with their creations. But still...I mostly like to paint for myself.

I hear you, Susan.  I feel the same, but what a delight when others begin to "like" art, too.

Congratulations Susan :congrats: I can see the folks had a wonderful time and you did a fabulous job teaching them.
Do it again. You will see that next time it will be much easier and even more enjoyable because you won't be so nervous. O0
