    Outlet

    I'm not very good at it but it's one outlet I have that makes me feel a little calmer and focused on things. I hope to get better at it eventually.

    Painting

    I enjoy painting, it helps me take my mind off of everything that is going on. I enjoy sharing photos with people and getting new ideas

    I've been messing around with some canvases

    lately and so far I've been pleased with what I've come up with. Oh, they'll never be centerpieces. But they will do really nicely as accent pieces. I'll try to sell some of them in the spring time at the farmers markets. There are plenty of craft tables there and I'll have one...

    New-ish

    I'm new to the painting game. I've only been painting for about 6 months, hence the -ish suffix. I used to draw with coloured pencils. I was gettin pretty good but I decided I wanted a challenge. So I took up this difficult but relaxing form of art.

    Painting, Painting, Painting!

    I love to paint....that's why I'm writing this. It is relaxing AND invigorating...both at the same time. You have to keep it fun, though...don't put a lot of pressure on yourself to "be the best" or create perfect pieces, because it's never going to happen. You have to paint...

    Painting

    I think I can paint very well, but I attribute that to practice; I've been either drawing or painting almost every day for three years, and before that I've been drawing for almost all of my life. About every two weeks I finish a new painting, and the amount of freedom that the...

    I Love To Paint But,

    I love to paint but, I have no urge to paint whatsoever. It is frustrating. It has been gone for a while now. In my dreams I see myself in a studio and now it seems that I have lost it. I hope I get it back before it is too late. Anyone else feel like this before?
