I can't remember the last time I painted. I love the calming, get lost in the moment, time flying by, relaxing feeling of painting.
I used to make time for painting in my younger days...my college days. A lot of my friends are very creative, artistic people that have always inspired me. Lately though, I have been staring at my accumulated blank canvases and decided that I need to do something about them.
Yesterday I decided to get out all of my old supplies and paint something colorful and full of texture. Abstract paintings have always been my favorite. While I appreciate the talent that goes in to the life like paintings, to me there is something way more interesting in a heavily textured, mismatched and abstract painting.
As I was standing at my easel, I couldn't help but just be in the moment.
My favorite tunes playing in the background.
The windows open.
A complete mess with paint all over myself and the table...
Yep, I have fallen in love all over again.
