I am a retired English teacher who has retired from teaching but not from life, which I intend to live to the full. With all my hobbies, I'm busier now than ever with my art groups, small business and gardening.

Rockingham Art Group
Members of the Rockingham Water Colour Society

There are many of us who look at those who can paint and draw in awe. Even Leonardo wasn't born an artistic genius, his work was due to good old fashioned hard work and positive feedback. The rest is procrastination and that's where belonging to an art group can help with motivation and inspiration.
