    still a work in progress and loving every minute!

    I loved getting back to Oil–however, due to my very old age, my hands are not as steady as they used to be and my painting of the boat became sloppy. Nevertheless, I still enjoy the classes and will sign up for sketching classes in the future. Sketching is easier for me as the pressure on the pencils and pens needed to sketch, steady my hands

    Thank you Nolan
