Sing sing sing

Use what talents you possess; the woods would be very silent if no birds sang except those that sang best. ~Henry van Dyke

Ever thought that we spend too much time holding back, because we think we will look silly because we are not good enough, but good enough for what or for whom? Have to say that I am enjoying sloshing paint around, doodling on notepads and discovering what I can do.

And so now on my trips to the new bibliotheque I am searching through the books about artists and paintings, the only thing is I need more days in the week, I keep forgetting to do my French homework!

Painted by Mother Nature, she is quite good!

Back soon Blu xx

The French word for homework is devoirs.

The French word for except is sauf

Enjoy the splashing - that's the whole point!

Love the photos too.

I wonder why your new posts are failing to pop up to the top of my sidebar. I must cancel and reinstall your avatar - it must be dusty due to Insufficient Blogging.

Seriously though - re your post, I've always been a bit of a 'what will people think if etc' but late in life I've realised you just have to do what you want and if others think it's not good enough, well the problem is not mine!

I think you should put everything you've painted on your blog and then you will realise that we think it's good.

Hi Blu
Your posts aren't registering on my site either.
I'm glad you are enjoying the creativity of painting.
