Don't they look delicious!

So I have done pretty good with painting one painting a week. Last week I got to pain another painting. You see I have painted since I was in the 3rd grade. That's when my mother put me in an acrylic painting class. In taking that class I was introduced to a new desires in my life. From then on I always wanted to paint in fact one of my best Christmas was when my parents got me this acrylic pain kit. Well when I was in the 5th to 7th grade I was home schooled and lost interest in fact that would be one of my dark years. I was very rebellious and was very angry at my parents. Then I went to Evangel Temple in 8th and 9th grade. I took Art and it sparked that desire once again. For my 10th and 11th grade I went to Grand Prairie High School and continue to take Art classes. Well if you don't know I became a mother at 17 and then never painted again. Then one Wednesday nite at my church my friend gave a word for those who loved art r wanted to pursue art more to raise their hands. She prayed over us and that's when God lite that fire in me again. Slowly I bought some supplies. Then finally after hearing God tell me over and over again make time for painting I did it. Now I know I can do it again and slow everything is coming back to me. So I purchased some painting books to teach me new and remind me of somethings so this is one painting I did from a book. I really need to master the shading thing. Making an object 3d is not something I have ever been good at. But I do know with practice I will get better.
