    A Material Heart And Soul

    I love painting with absolutely everything I have. I have no idea what I'd do without it, it's my one and only escape from this life that I was thrown into. My home life isn't great, I'm 16 and considering moving into a homeless shelter for teens, but I'll always have my paints...

    Painting is really relaxing to me.

    I Love To But Never Have That Much Talent

    I love to paint but it seemed crazy to take out my brushes and colours and start painting. Life is to busy for that, too fast-paced, too much pressure. Sucks to be you, life!

    Artwork.

    I love to paint. It is not something I do often, or something that I am very good at, but every now and again I like to sit down with my paints and a piece of canvas and paint the first thing that comes to my mind. It is relaxing.
