Wow it's been awhile since I blogged. I've been having a rough time since I had to make my husband leave the house. I go through periods of being fine and then I start to feel nice and sorry for myself. My good friend Cindi set me straight the other day.. I really appreciated her honesty and not coddling me. Sometimes you just need to hear some good ole honest reality!! Ya know?
anywho on Friday nights Cindi comes to the house to give me art lessons on her style of painting. I'm so enjoying this. Ya know I forget what it's called. It's not One Stroke but similar I think. Duh! LOL Cindi if you read this post leave me a comment on what the name of your style painting is. ROFL!!
Anywho again here is my second painting. I am amazed at how realistic the fruit looks. It all about these techniques on achieving that. A lot goes into it. I'm learning how to mix my paints,how to load my brush for different looks, how to handle my brushes, brush strokes and soooo much more! I am having a ball!! Each week we do a different picture and we review what is learned and learn a new technique. She paints a long with me and compared to her painting mine isn't so good but I'm giving myself kudo's for it being my second attempt at this.
I think the apple on the right looks like a persimmon (lol) but all in all I like it! The daisies I didn't like from the get go but they looked better as we started to finish the picture.
Cindi has been my rock with what I am going through with my husband. It is so comforting to have a friend I can go to that listens, doesn't baby me and cares. Years ago after my accident I had tons of friends.. or so I thought. Little by little each one left me. I couldn't be the person I had been anymore. I wasn't the good time Robyn who danced on the tables... I went through hell then and there was not a soul to support me. I had made my mind up then never to get close to any woman again. To keep them at arms distance. Not to let them every see me vulnerable or needy. I have lived like this for the last 18 years since my accident. No one really every penetrated my armor and I made sure of that. I was not going to get hurt like that again. Well this little gal has my heart now. I trust her totally. Little by little our friendship has grown. Then when I had to do what I did she was so totally there for me. I tell you the truth at first I didn't trust it. Why would someone put themselves out for me right now when I have nothing to give back. I guess I have learned a good lesson on friendship and what a good friend is. I needed that. The feelings of having a good friend is back with me again. I missed it and never realized it. Oh sure I have had friends the last 18 years but it seems in time everyone leaves.I made sure not to count on anyone.. I just never allowed myself to get hurt. I don't know what will become of our friendship. But in my heart I hope it last for many years to come. and if I do get hurt in the end well it was a good lesson learned. Thank you Cindi for opening up my heart again. I will always be there for youl
now back to our regularly stationed program. LOL

I am so looking forward to next Friday to learn some more. Oh yeah and I promised to practice my brush strokes during the week. Girl Scouts Honor! LOL
