    I painted this and it took me 2 weeks.

    It's a bird of paradise flower.

    picked up a couple years back. I am geeky about my collection and do each card in calligraphy.

    fully shaded and all of that fun stuff. Hours were spent on this. Hours.

    I am a painter and it's the only job I ever

    want to do. It's exciting and I meet amazing people and set my own schedule. There are some bad points. First, artists don't like each other. I never had an arch enemy, until I went to college for fine arts. There is another talented artist who I can't compliment on her work...

    I never used to call myself this.

    But if you believe as I do that art is a product of the soul turning suffrage into beauty, then we are all artists, dabbling in a million different mediums.I feel the most beautiful smeared all over with paint. :)Until about 3 years ago I merely sketched, and thought I could not...

    Art Is My Passion...

     Passion: There are many things in life that will catch your eye...but only a few will catch your heart...pursue those. Once upon a time...I wanted to be an artist...and a writer...but life sorta kinda happened. Life's kind of like that. At least...the life that I've always...

    I birthed from the Womb,

    with paintbrush in hand and pencil in the other. Picasso? He's my far distant brother. ') Give me any blank space, and it became my Canvas. Filled with Shapes, Wonder, and Colour; much so, I'd create a new Land Mass. See the rhythm of my Muse, Become Bewildered, the choices...

    Am I An Artist

    I stare with you at the colored palettes on the wall, Chosen, judged, and hung like captured men. You see something there, I see it in you. You stare, you gasp, you cry. I see some things, too; but you don’t see it in me. I look and others gasp, others cry. Your feelings wash...

    This is one of my paintings.

    ..I don't usually show anything off that I do, cause in my eyes it's never that great always things I could have tweaked...so I really don't know why I'm posting this, I guess it's different when u post for people you don't know ...oh well...anyways, there it is..

    I love painting with oils

    and watercolours with an impressionist style. I am currently studying to become an artist and eventually I wish to be as good as impressionists like Claude Monet.

    If you go up to an artist

    and tell them how awesome their work is, they will most likely say no, it's crap, i have to fix it, etc. but if you go up to an artist and give them constructive criticism, they will most likely say, i knew it was crap! and then tear up the paper and start on a new page.

    No matter the specific shape,

    I kinda bothers me that

    when I draw, people always interrupt to ask what I'm doing and what I'm drawing. And I hate it when I draw people they ask if it's me...it's getting hard to be a nice person to people these days
