Our local paint studio

recently had a pop up oil class - 
A chance to play with oil paints? 
Yes, please!
We had a nice little group and 
our teacher was so patient and wonderful!
I loved the step-by-step she gave us - 
And hands-on help, as well!
But I've gotta say, this little painting above?
It's one of the hardest things I've ever done.
Oil paints takes some getting used to y'all.
There was more than one point when I made a muddy mess by accidentally touching that black, or smearing the white... or having my bugs flying upside down [don't look!] Ha. 
But overall, it was a lot of fun - 
And I'm so glad I gave it a go!
And I love my final product!
It made me think of a page I did in my Bible a few years ...
The idea for this came off google images
[I don't know the original artist]
So this is inspired by that - 
All done in water colors...
Maybe this is one reason I love fireflies so much is because they remind me that we really should be living as children of The Light.
I kinda love that too.
