I had a wonderful opportunity to participate as part of a Social Art Night series at GEM Studios here in Las Vegas. The event was open for anyone wanting to paint and socialize. People of all skill levels showed up and I was delighted to paint with professional artists alongside aspiring individuals such as myself. Inspiration was to be found throughout the whole night.
I felt at first like a diamond in the rough. More rough than diamond. By the end of the first night, I had created my first real painting in acrylic. It's inspired me to explore painting and art more and I'm so very grateful to Geneva Marquez for that inspiration and encouragement.
