When I'm not teaching, I try to find time to get out my paints. But I don't do it as often as I'd like. Painting over the summer gives me a chance to free my brain, rejuvenating me for the school year. When I don't have time to paint, I still try to keep up with ideas, so I subscribe to Lillian Kennedy's website. Her lessons remind me to just paint whenever and wherever ... and to do it fearlessly. I think all teachers should get out and paint.
