    I'm looking at this blanking empty world

    and I think it's time I pick up my paint brush and give it life.

    I love sketching and painting,

    always have since I was a kid. Its always been a very relaxing hobby for me and its something I can get really creative with. I have a very over active mind so it helps me get a lot of my ideas out in a way I can uniquely express them. I'm currently on the route to getting some...

    A painting that I've been working on

    for some time. Finally finished. Quite happy with it. It's of a picture I took while walking one day.

    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...

    I have been losing my drive

    for art lately. I'm in another deep block and this time I'm not wanting to do anything. I have no clue what to draw or paint, I hate my art and style, and wish I were quicker and better. I can't seem to stay motivated in much of anything anymore. I can't seem to find passion...

    I often post artwork on here,

    but I want to post it on a platform where people could look at it and enjoy it more. I'm thinking Tumblr; I used to have an account, but it's messed up right now, and if you don't have constant output, you don't get any press. Any ideas?

    Artist Or Artisan

    Is it a bad thing that I've come to realize I think of myself more as an artisan then an artist? I've spent most of my life making my living from my hands but having creative tendencies.... not alot of galleries where I'm from or there wasn't anyway. Then my father died suddenly...

    Artist problem: When someone asks you to draw

    them, and when you actually agree to, they won't stay still. Even worse is when they get up and leave in the middle of it like they never even asked.

    I never liked using the term artist.

    ...when referring to myself but...yes I am a creative being that creates lol . I love drawing using pencil,pencil crayons and recently branched out to using acrylic paints. hoping to expand my range onto different mediums and really diversify my ability.

    I drew this for my mother on her birthday.

    It is her father(my grandfather). He passed away many years ago, and she's in a foreign country now, so I thought it'd make her feel more at home with a drawing of him in her hands. :)

    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.
