Commit with a Friend

There are moments in life when it becomes challenging to make time to create purely for one's self. Therefore, I embraced the opportunity to tutor a former student of mine, (now friend) , Zach Woomer, on how to paint in oil paints. We commit 2 hours out of our busy schedule to meet and paint.
For this still life painting, I gave Zach the opportunity to pick the items to paint. Despite initially being irritated by his ambitious choice of laced sneakers for a 2 hour painting, I surprised myself with what I achieved. Words of advice: "Embrace every challenge. The byproduct offers confidence."
Thanks Zach.
