My First Painting!

I painted today! So, you all know I like to fiddle around with paints, but I never really knew what I was doing. I never tried very hard to paint anything real, because I was afraid that I would fail miserably. The things that I did try always turned out not very good. So, I basically swore off all mediums except for pencil. Pencil I could handle. BUT I have this amazing husband that does artsy things all the time and makes me want to be cool and creative like he is. He also has shown me tricks (inadvertently and on purpose) to help me to paint better and made me realize that it doesn't have to be perfect the first time you try.

So, without further ado, I give you the first painting of Lisa Sue Tapp:

Sorry for the low quality image. Still using my phone for a camera. But isn't it cool? It definitely has a lot of flaws (the fire should be lower, the edges cleaner, etc.), but that hand kinda looks like a hand! And that fire kinda looks like fire! Kinda... :) I'd say it's definitely an okay first ever painting. I'm so excited!

Thanks so much to Trevon for being my inspiration and for reawakening my artistic side. I'm so thankful to have him by my side forever :)
