    Even if i have things to do

    and i'm in the mood for painting, i would really leave or cancel what i'm doing and just paint. I mostly paint my shirts and shoes with patterns (aztek) or sayings or statements.

    I'm not very good....

    .and they always get worse before they get finished..... It's what I do when I get frustrated with life, really angry at whatever or whomever.... Beating a canvas with a big old paintbrush feels great. Good release of unnecessary tension and bad vibes.

    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...

    Water Color Painting

    I love to paint with watercolors, but I have not been able to do so. My house is under renovations at present, and is in total kaos. I hate the turmoil, and not being able to paint or draw. It seems like eons since I have been able to do anything that I really like. I do not...

    I use either acrylic

    or watercolour depending on my inspiration at the time. Sometimes I will use watercolour pencils or marker pens. After a period of abstract art I have come back to landscapes. Using the grid system I am drawing the outlines.

    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?

    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...

    NO I DID NOT PAINT THESE MYSELF!

    ! They are the ones where a picture is drawn and you paint in the lines. I have no artistic ability whatsoever.

    Painters can make three types of paintings

    that are very popular. All of them start with a blank canvas, of course. The first artist uses a lot of pink. In contrast the second artist really likes to use a lot of red. The third type makes abstract designs of stripes at all different angles.
