Freshly Painted















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. 
Bright sunlight.
A complete mess with paint all over myself and the table...

Yep, I have fallen in love all over again.

Thanks Kelly!! I have never had a painting class before. I just look up videos and try new things as I go! You should just dive in and see where it takes you!! :)

@Brandi Sides Thanks Brandi! I'm glad I inspired you to paint. I was needing inspiration too before this and now that this painting is done, all I can think about is starting another one!
