Do you remember Paint-by-Numbers? Along with coloring books, this childhood activity has made a comeback.
I should have known that I would be an artist when I was growing up because I HATED Paint-by-Numbers. I didn't want someone else telling me where to put the color. I also didn't like the idea of being told what color to use in the first place. In fact, I hated someone telling me that I had to paint a boat in a particular color, or in a particular position. To tell the truth, I didn't want to paint a boat at all. How about a tree? I guess I wanted to experiment and do things differently even when I was young. Worked out okay for me.
Did you like Paint-by-Numbers, or hate it like I did? Let me know in the comments below.
If you want to paint your own thing, you may join me in classes. I will be teaching Pastel Painting at the Workhouse Arts Center in Lorton, Virginia again starting Wednesday, September 21. For more information and to register, click here: http://www.lynngoldstein.com/classes--workshops.html
