We have a lady at church that teaches oil painting. Over the course of her life she has taught many students to paint. Most of her work was with children who had been through troubled homes and environments. It is a wonderful way to help heal some of the hurt and to get the children to express themselves in a positive way. Now she is teaching Gess to paint and she is very pleased with how quickly Gess took to it. She thinks that Gess will become really great at it. That excites me. Here are pictures of Gess going to one of her recent lessons in which she got to bring home her very first oil painting!
