Sight of Spring
Daffodils in my front yard, and their phases in life.
Speckled Willow
Another splatter tree, tried to do a willow. A little square on the top but interesting anyways. I had fun.
Another scenery, but I wanted a winter scene, maybe a deer. And then by the end I forgot to leave room for this became the forest of "explosion wiped out the trees". Haha enjoy.
I've always been interested in art. Drawing first and foremost because it was the first and easiest medium available to me as a kid, and then further down the line it was painting.
After many years of drawing and practicing, I saw my skills come to a standstill and I just couldn't develop any further. I decided to stop drawing. Completely. It was heartbreaking for me, but what was worse was to be unbearably frustrated and depressed when I was never satisfied with my level of work.
As artists, as far as I know from being with other artists and writers, you get this itch, this urge to create. It's almost impossible to ignore. Even after quitting drawing for going on 6 years now, I get the creative urge. I get it so often and it kills me to tell myself that I shouldn't bother trying to create because I know it's not going to come out good enough. I would write instead. Cross-stitch instead. Play games or hover over my sprouting baby plants instead, to try and alleviate the itch. I'm irritable and listless and depressed.
Recently, my girlfriend Dominique and I were sitting around and watching tv and she springs on me a Bob Ross "The Joy of Painting" episode. Apparently she loves watching him paint. I watched two with her and then started a YouTube Bob Ross spree. And then a Robin Clonts spree...and I've gone down from there, watching oil and watercolour painting like mad.
I looked at these things and remembered how much freedom I felt with the very small amount of painting I had done in my younger years. A kind of freedom I never felt like I had with drawing. Too much obsessing with detail and specifics for me that I couldn't get away from. And I thought...I could do that. I could paint. It might not look good, but I know that at least I like doing it.
So at the beginning of next year- 2017 -I will paint! And I will post! And hopefully gain skills and maybe possibly sell things! But for sure the painting.
Thanks for sticking around for the life story, it means a lot to me.
See you in 2017.
