    Dear Shawna
    Hi, my name is Jackie, I live in Brisbane Australia. I like to paint though I am not very good at it and do not often have the opportunity. For me, painting allows me to switch off. Often it is hard to be just still and get close to God, and I was thinking that painting would be a way to do that. I am hoping to get a few like minded people together and somehow couple painting with a time to get close to God. Do you have any ideas?

    Thank you

    Jackie Fewtrell
