A few years ago, a wonderful artist, Carolyn Buchanan took a group of artists island hopping for a week. Base Camp was Orcas and each day we would catch the ferry and have class for the day on another island. This was for watercolorist and beginners accepted. Well, I am not a watercolor artist but the trip was too good to pass on so I got supplies and off I went. It seemed everyone knew what they were doing but me. Best time ever! I used oil painting concepts which kept we somewhat from being a complete idiot so I painted my little heart out. Mostly I learned, never fear change, try something new and enjoy the moment. Okay, that was sometimes difficult but keep working and for goodness sake, maintain your sense of humor, that will get you through anything. Honest.
