I’ve been gone for a long while from my ART. Not just the website but also the creation of any artwork. I’ve been learning photography but not painting or drawing and I really miss it. You see, my art is part of who I am. It’s how I identify myself. I’ve let other things once again get in the way of my art. In December I will finish my Masters degree and while that is a truly great achievement for me, it’s not my art.
I miss the smell of oil paint and the color. My life has been rather dull in the last year and a half since I started the degree. I long for color and big, shiny globs of paint. I also miss a new canvas or piece of paper just full of potential. A new friend and I were having a conversation today about my art and she urged me to return to my art today. Not put it off until December as I had intended. So I will dust off the space and arrange my brushes and paints and select a pristine canvas. My head is full of ideas and thoughts of things I want to paint.
Now is the time! I can’t wait to see what comes forth.
