My creative side

I have decided that I am going to make a big effort to illustrate my own posts. I am finally able to afford oil paint so I may even use color. I'm afraid of color by the way. It's permanent in ways charcoal and graphite are not. I think I will also showcase other artist's creations as well, when I don't have the time to make my own.

it seems all us blogging girls are smart, artistic, and generally awesome! i love this idea. i'd try and do the same but with the time it takes me to finish any art (damn perfectionism) i'd never get anything posted. oh and i'm sort of scared of paint just like you are!

Aw sauce you just made me smile so big :o) I think we just really know how to live and generally make the most out of life. And i completely agree, being a perfectionist SUCKS!

I love color. It is intimidating sometimes, but you can do so much with it. I'm a big fan of using as many colors as I can in my pieces.

I love color so much and I admire anyone that is talented with it! You ladies need to put up your art work! I'm so curious now!

Seriously. I consider myself to be pretty artistic, but I cannot translate what is in my head on to paper in the form of an image. That's why I like words! Anyhow, I want to see everyone's work! Then, I can live vicariously through you!
