Today I went to a Charity event, being held by my great friend Sarah, who was raising money for her sisters orphanage in Thailand. We paid £15 each, to paint a picture and every penny went to them. We were being guided by a great lady Beryl Maile who is Professional Artist. Beryl provided all the paints, card, and mounts for us and did not take a penny. She is such a hoot too! Every now and again she would come out with a little ditty, and made us laugh!!
Beryl’s favourite saying is “Can I make a suggestion” and I said “No” I like my painting as it is…We did each section in stages, Sky, then the fields and then the Rocks..so each time she would say this.. she said at the end, that she liked me because I was positive about what I saw in my painting. We all had a brilliant time.
A big thank you to Beryl for giving up her day to help us raise money for such a worthy cause.
