Even after years of marriage, it's possible to be surprised by your spouse. A few weeks ago, my wife suddenly began to paint. She started by reading books, going through Websites and watching Youtube videos covering different aspects of painting, such as technique and handling shadows. Then an artist friend here in Mongolia gave her some valuable lessons.
She spends hours and hours painting. I really like her work and I'm astonished that she can produce paintings like these after such a short time. Her skill has markedly improved since her first painting, of tangerines. She has real talent and I hope she keeps working at it.
