Life and writing, serious and humorous, old and young, past and present: it's all part of the fabric.
If your words are any indicator, you are painting beautiful pictures. xoxo
I am, erm, dabbling, in a beginner's playful way. xx
I would love to see your paintings...
They are not yet 'paintings' -- they are, erm, sketches and dabbles. I'm learning.
I paint too, Sharon. Watercolors. It's refreshing, isn't it?
I try, but , as I never learned , I never succeed to get what I was imagining..Anyway , I like the FACT TO DO it , it's very pleasant and zen..
(see reply, below, re just learning. . . that was intended for you.)
^_^ As much as I can.
Yes, me, too. I am only just learning, but I love to do it; it's 'very pleasant and zen'! xx
I wrote a blog post comparing my painting to my writing--I start with a foundation and gradually work all around the painting (novel) to add layers and depth.
I paint in bits...and express creativity in knitting, sewing, and beading when the paint does not come out as I expected. I do have the same watercolors
Your photo sure makes me want to paint! I really draw (sketch & dabble) more than paint, but have the urge to explore more. I love your joy, painting or words. Speaking of dabbles: Did you receive an envelope recently full of dabbly stripes? I fear the stamp & postmark got obscured by alll the color & maybe they didn't deliver it...
How funny -- I think of you as equally painting and drawing. And yes, I received the beautiful stripey envelope with glassware of bella colori. Luv. Molto grazie. xx
Sometimes, I worry if the colors are right... a lot. But I figure as long as I'm putting down colorful words, I can always paint over it.
