    Had Forgotten

    Somewhere along the line, I managed to forget how much I love doing art-stuff.  But a few months ago someone invited me to an art class...and the rest is history. I'm peaceful, calm, content when I'm doing art.  Writing is fun, but I feel happier and overall better when...

    I Love to Make Things.

     I love, love, love to make things. I'm not so good at actually drawing or painting, (my best works are doodles) and I'm not a carpenter, or a genius mechanic like my best friend, but I love writing and more specifically, making emotions. That's why I love acting. I swear...

    Painting

    i love painting, drawing, sewing and just making things. i lose track of time when i'm painting. its mostly stripey, curly, colourful stuff so i'm not even sure of how it will end up! if i'm feeling down at all, i'll use lots of yellows and it lifts my mood!

    It's Surprising.

    When you catch yourself in a moment of pure happiness, it's the most amazingly contented feeling in the world! For me, it only happens in the midst of my most creative moments.

    I Am Happiest When Creating

    it's not only the act of creating that brings me happiness, but the simple fact that creating, for me is symbolic of having time to do so! and that too brings me joy as it means i can relax. i hate the tempo of today.

    I am an artist. I love to paint, build, and make things, but for the last couple of months or so I have had no interest in painting or anything else. I can't seem to get past this stupid rut. I really need to get back to it, but I don't know what has happened.

    Original ideas are inspired.

    There are two spiritual forces in this world... good and evil. If the idea is 'good' then you can know it's source is God. So, in other words, creativity is a window into God's Personality! I absolutely LOVE that thought... because I love God.

    The Inner Person

    Inside me, there's a little person, who sees, feels, hears, smells, and tastes all the tings I do. But they are the artist, they like to draw, and write beautiful poems that bring tears to my own eyes. WHen I create I release all my pain, suffering, and heartache, and I'm me.
