    I'm Rather New To Painting

    But not to art as a whole. I just did my first acrylic painting yesterday. It was rather simple, but it was also for work. I "work" as a concept artist, (I say "work" because I have yet to get any notion that I'll be paid other than being told that I'll have a...

    I Never Paint Anything But the Ocean...

    The ocean is so beautiful, everytime I get a new canvas, I start painting the ocean even when I wanted to paint something else before... I guess I love the ocean so much I have to keep painting to not have 'ocean oveload' in my head.
