I love art.

#20 and #29 are officially crossed off the list, and this painting is proof. It's a little funky, but not bad for my second painting, eh? I love the colors and the abstract subject. The old adage, "Don't quit your day job" comes to mind though, so I'll continue to rely on my photography skills to make dough, but I'm looking forward to infusing a little watercolor into my repertoire. After taking just this one class, I've been reminded how much I love art. I've been delightfully "stuck" in this photography thing for so long that I forget other mediums exist. One medium I've always been interested in but never tried is printmaking, and I'm thinking of taking a series of printmaking classes beginning next month. I'm looking specifically at mixed media, woodcut and linocut, but I'm pretty much open to anything. I just want to do it!

Something else I'm getting into is a new collaboration. I'm working with four other girls on a photography collab called Words to Shoot By. Although our first post won't be up till Monday, April 6th, check out our blog to see who's who. I'm really excited about it, and need to get out shooting for it!

Wont be long before you start entering painting shows! If I had a list, learning to paint would be on it too :)

I love it! I would never guess that was only your second one.

Your eye for composition stands out - have to say I like the use of vibrant colors.
