Hello everyone. Before I write this blog I wanted to thank all of you for being a part of, and for your interest in Laurie Burton Training.
I love what I do! Helping people realize their potential and embrace their individuality. BUT, there are times when I have to “practice what I preach.”
Example: All my life I have been attracted to art, painting and drawing, but I would never attempt it, because in my mind my drawing ability was not very good, in fact I thought it was awful. My mother, father and stepfather were gifted artists. This alone was intimidating, plus the fact I could barely draw a stick figure. In fact, you might compare it to how many people feel about getting in front of group and speaking–they avoid it.
Six years ago I started doing sketches of mountains and trees. I tried western style painting and even figure drawing where you draw real life naked models. That was something! The bottom line (no pun intended), was it just didn’t appeal to me – the approach or the teacher. One day a friend of mine recommended that I try Chinese Brush Painting.
