I was at Art Off Symmes, in Hamilton, Ohio last night teaching a painting class to a great group of students. This was a beginners class, and some had no previous painting experience. This was an acrylic class. They learned to paint the flowers but also the glass, and some even painted water drops They did a great job! Many thanks to Sherry Armstead!
I walked out into the yard after a spring rain, and the sun was just peeking out of the clouds. The Knock Out Roses were in full bloom, and the sunlight sparkling on the raindrops stopped me in my tracks. No words or oil paint could possibly capture the beauty of that rose that moment, but as Yoda would say "Do or do not... there is no try."
Thanks once again to my brother Larry for the title :) and to Jack for reminding me about the Yoda quote :)
