A new adventure to kickoff014

I've started a new adventure in life !  Well for the first 6 weeks of 2014 anyway.
Mati Rose of Daring Adventures in Paint is teaching a group of us through an e-course about color, creativity and painting.

2014 is a year to Explore, Play and Create --  in COLOR!

In this 1st week we'll learn about Finding Inspiration and Creating a Lush Painted Background.
I'm shopping for my supplies tomorrow and I'll get my painting station set up and ready to mix up some colors :)
