My family is well aware that I have tried my hand at many artsy-crafty hobbies, also, I've given karate a try for 3 years and bellydance for another three.
Since my move out west, I haven't been sewing, knitting or embroidering like in my 'former life'.... and I have felt the void.
Yesterday, I picked up a paint brush, some acrylic paint in a tube and began smearing colour on a canvas.
Let's just say that Leonard da Vinci's work will not be threatened in any way by my contribution to the arts. I seem to have all the finesse of a mud fight.
I have taken some books out of the library to try to gain insight into the how, what, when and who in the painting world, but it is a lot like learning brain surgery from a video, if you know what I mean.
Stay tuned. I may have a jazzy little picture next week to hang in my kitchen or I may use it to line a bird cage. I haven't decided yet.
