Painting is a wonderful way to express yourself. About five years ago I decided that I was going to take a painting class. I really did not know how to paint at first, but I wanted to learn. I remember when I first looked at the blank canvas, I had no idea what I was going to paint. We had a wonderful artistic teacher, and she gave us the best ideas, and she also taught us some of the best ways to paint. I remember when I started painting, everything that I made was horrible, by the end of the first year, I was painting pictures that were so beautiful that I have a few of them in my friends’ homes.
