Me working on my next "ahem" masterpiece
Yay, looks like today I paint!

Though I have doodled on and off through the years, it wasn’t anything I ever felt passion for. It was something I thought I could do, but something I didn’t necessarily feel like doing.

Many other creative people are like this, writers, musicians. Sculptors. I’m not sure what changed for myself, but now I find I have a need for painting. Being able to spend time with the Masters is a special bonus. For instance, I’ll come to a point in a painting where I feel like something needs to change, or perhaps there should be a shape or color added in a particular spot. Then when I look at my printout of the original masterpiece, most often I see they had added pretty much the very thing I’d been thinking of! That unexpected connection brought tears to my eyes the first time it happened. I, had thought like them!

It’s incredible still connecting with them in some way. In the tiny details of their paintings, I can see why they may have placed something where. Why there’s light in that one spot, why an object was added to that right side. It’s a great way to learn, and that connection through time is, just wow!

I’ve dabbled a bit with colored pencils, oil pastels, and am currently in love with acrylics. At some point however, I hope to progress to oils. But for now acrylics are my medium of choice.

Anyways, thank YOU for stopping by and spending time with ME 😊
