When it comes to painting, what’s the best part for you?

For me, I think it’s seeing the colors combine, mix and become something new right before my eyes OR maybe it’s just that I actually GET to do this OR maybe how smooth it feels to have the oils and brush gliding around on the painting surface OR …OK, feel free to include more than one thing in your comment 😉

Hope you feel especially loved today because…

YOU ARE!!!

  • Ruth (Mandy) - January 27, 2017 - 5:25 pm

    I am new at this. Very new. I never thought I could paint because I can’t draw…therefore, I focused on photography instead and buy everyone else’s art! Then I took a one time painting session and was amazed and thrilled at what I managed to create! It was so exhilarating and exciting to see a landscape come to life; One from my poor attempt. My daughter loves Dreama’s paintings and so I have become a fan as well and when I saw this opportunity to learn to paint with such vibrancy, my inner self said: “Why Not!” So, here i am…it was a push on my retired budget, but I signed up and can’t wait to see what other hidden treasure lies just beneath the surface!!! Thank you Dreama for your wonderful works & for this.ReplyCancel

  • Sharmila - January 27, 2017 - 7:16 am

    I love the sound of my brush as I paint on the canvas. I love the glide of colour inks on paper. I love the grating of oil pastels on the cardsheet and the delicate pencil strokes on a sheet of fine grained paper… Yes I draw and paint with all media.ReplyCancel

    Hi Dreama
    Thank you for chance to win!
    Well the truth is I fell in love with you again
    when I did the last painting bonus video yesterday.
    Yes I finally made it happen and sunk into it all.
    I love remembering how amazing painting is as I take the
    time to allow myself space for the adventure.
    thanks again
    Melissa

    I love the smell of oils!
    When I was about 5, my grandmother had just finished painting a sweet face on a little doll ” in oils.” I kissed it! The smell takes me back to Grandma’s painting porch with stories, love & laughter,ReplyCancel

  • Christy - January 26, 2017 - 11:52 am

    When it comes to painting, I love the physical sensation of the brush applying paint to the paper – there is a pleasurable feeling watching the brushstrokes and colors – a visual feast of joy.
    Thank you for the giveaway!ReplyCancel

  • Patricia Ansert - January 26, 2017 - 10:35 am

    My favorite part of painting is getting out of my head and getting away from what’s going on in life. I love starting off with burnt sienna and putting in my darks and wiping out the brights and toning the canvas and trying to think of what the composition is going to look like. It’s a moment anticipation and Hope and it makes me very happy.ReplyCancel

    I’m thankful for my son for my health and for being able to paintReplyCancel

  • Pat Beaver - January 26, 2017 - 9:57 am

    As an undergraduate art major, I had to mix pigments in my painting courses to get the colors that I wanted. Even with formulas, I could never quite get the colors desired. I really thought that I did not like painting. Once I saw Dreama’s beautiful work online & her first course offering, I jumped at the chance to try painting again. For me, painting is one of the only activities that fully engages my mind, body and spirit, blocking out the passage of time. I sometimes allow life to get in the way of painting, so I’m going to Provence (virtually) for permission to paint! Even with occasional breaks, I now know that I’ll always come back to painting. It’s like food for my soul & Dreama is one inspiring chef!ReplyCancel

  • Francine - January 26, 2017 - 9:47 am

    Painting is my favorite get-away. It engages my whole heart and mind.ReplyCancel

  • Mary Jane Gavenda - January 26, 2017 - 9:43 am

    I am thankful for keeping good on my promise to get back to putting paint on canvas after a long absence. Most exciting part for me is the color–that’s what I really respond toReplyCancel

  • Trish Trovato - January 26, 2017 - 9:31 am
