I came home from work Friday night to find a vase of red roses, a bottle of Coppola Pinot Noir, a funny card about marriage, a box of chocolates worthy of Forrest Gump & his mamma.
As if this were not enough, the biggest surprise of all...water color paints, brushes, cold pressed paper & a book on watercolor technique.
You could have knocked me down.
I haven't seriously painted since college.
I haven't tried since ten years ago when I bought myself watercolor supplies, several books and began sketching again. I never followed through with any of it.
After profusely thanking him, I asked what made him pick up the art supplies. His answer, "You've always regretted not continuing with your art in college and I 'it's never too late' and went to the Art Store & talked with the owner about the proper supplies to get you started."
He paused and looked at me expectantly.
"Are you going to try?"
Well, yes. Yes I am.
