    A Blank Page

    A Blank page is beautiful to me. It's like a lover with open arms ready to hear what you have to say and to love you for it no matter what. A blank page is open to you and it doesn't judge you. My first reaction would be to write a song on it.

    Staring At The Blank Pages Of Life!

    When I look at a blank page or canvas I see possibility; it is fresh and new, never tarnished, free from any preconceived notions of another person’s beauty or thought.  When I look at the blank page the ideas star flowing in my head and I see the beauty I can create...

    Oh No, Not Another One!

    There are some many blanks canvases and papers of all types around here I don't have much reaction at all. It IS kind of frustrating to look at all the partly finished canvases and papers, though. Recently going through my art and trying to make sense of what I've done (scanned...

    Excitement

    A new page/canvas means that anything could happen. Anything. Maybe the page is destined to be a page of notes, or a page of doodles. Maybe the canvas is going to be saved somehow and showcased in a museum hundreds of years in the future. And the destiny doesnt always mean that's...

    I Don't

    I don't really have a reaction to one. If I was in a room with a blank canvas it would probably go unnoticed by me. I would definitely see it because I am aware of everything around me, but I am also usually lost in thought about something else already so it would never enter my...

    A Bit Frustrating

    I could get everything that I need and have it all ready whether it be a drawing pad with charcoal or a canvas with water or oil paints. Then I sit in a seat or stand there and just think at that moment..... "now what".
