    But it sucks when you get the artist's block.

    I'm sitting here with my sketchbook open, yet I have no idea on what to draw. People? Scenery? Animals? objects? My mind is blank. Fudge, I need to find more friends who appreciate or are involved with art. -grabby hands- --Stella

    even though I'm really terrible at doing

    paintings and drawing and stuff, I really love doing it with a passion. it calms me down in a way nobody has ever been able to do.

    I'm not sure if this has happened to other

    people but... Today I was drawing a creepy picture and listening to music. Suddenly a light dashed across my drawing and was surprised by it. Or more like spooked by it. Has it happened to you? I think it happened because I was getting really into my stuff and spacing out.

    I love drawing in a cubist

    yet abstract style and soon I'll be upping the ante by painting those designs. I'm not really confident they'll sell but I'll at least try.

    Does digital painting count?

    I've been wanting to get into it more, but I've been really busy with some other projects for school.

    Just bought a new easel

    and I want to start finishing a painting each month or so. It's very therapeutic and I think I've finally got a handle on some solid brushstrokes.

    I am happy to pose for artists.

    I love how artists study the body and interpret it, and I love the sound of pencil on paper while I am posing. If anyone needs a model or hasn't tried life drawing yet, feel free to contact me ....

    Before I never painted,

    colored or anything. Got into it after my mother's suicide. Now I can look at something that would be hideous and think I can turn that into something really kool. I love being able to look at thinks in this new way.

    I like to use the Paint program on computers to

    create various images of my own using what's provided. The other day I was so bored and could not stop thinking of my crush. So I made this image. I call it "Hidden" because a lot is hidden in it and I also have a hidden message behind it.
