I am sure everyone is familiar with that quote from Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet. I was just thinking about when I started this blog a couple of years or so back. I had become bored with my job and was craving a creative outlet. Writing has always come easy to me so I thought I would share my writings with the world via Blogger.
Perhaps I should rename my blog "My Life as a Painter". I hesitate to call myself an artist. Well, yet anyway. I'm a fledgeling. I like that.
This summer when I painted it was an escape. One afternoon I picked up a brush and made strokes that felt good. I made more strokes and more. I inadvertently left the painting out in the yard next to the gravel driveway. That night it rained. The paint had bubbled up in places and collected gravel dust in the ridges left behind. Mother Nature decided to help me out.
I have always loved abstracts.
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.
Have a great day. Create something.
