Color Guam held it’s 3rd “Coffee & Canvas” at the Hyatt Regency Resort on March 26th. As an instructor, it’s always an honor when someone signs up for the class because I know they are committed to learning – mixing colors, using a paintbrush, something they may have never done before and they are dedicated to saying “Yes” to ceasing moments in their lives through the act of painting.
Starting off with a blank canvas is always intimidating, there are lots of questions that loom in the mind and every now and then a little voice that may say “I’m not sure about this,” but as any professional painter will tell you – the only way to get from A to Z is to paint through it. Painting is a process. Just like learning to ride a bike or playing soccer for the first time. Every stroke that’s made is a small unit that eventually becomes a unified whole that creates your final masterpiece. Water is never easy to paint, neither is a sunset or even the sun reflecting on water bursting with different colors, but you all rose to the challenge and did such an incredible job. I was simply amazed by your patience and your determination and I enjoyed working with every one of you. You can now say Yes! I can paint!
