Create Kind Cards

Awhile ago, in my post "Artistic Compromise" here, many of you told me you sent your cards to some charities or homes.

1st Painting Lesson

The last time I took a painting class, it was in school where I tried to make an apple look more than a round object with a twig on the top...and I failed miserably.
