I started painted while I was in college. It was a stress reliever that has turned into something I hold dear to my heart. I sold a few pieces in art shows and it helped me make money while I was broke in college. But mostly I do it just for me and these paintings are starting to fill up our apartment. It is just one of those things that I get lost in and before I know it the whole day has gone by. When the weather is warm I take up our whole front porch with paint bottles and half finished canvases lining the window sills.
I don't have good brushes and I usually paint with the canvas on my lap. But boy do I love layers of color and getting paint underneath my fingernails.
Do any of you have something you do just for you?
