I assume you did this when you were a lot younger? I only ask because I feel your other painting of the stream shows much more maturity.I may not know art but I know what I like,I you would like to have a link on my site just let me know.You can find me at Christo’s BlogBye now,@mrmuggles: Thanks. This is one of my favorite paintings.@Sire: I think they were done within a few years of each other actually, both before I was 12.@Christo: I am glad you like the art. Art is one of those things I like to think you don’t have to be an expert at to be able to appreciate. 🙂Impressive, and have you done anything that is more recent?@Sire: Most of my oil paintings were from elementary school. I plan on posting some more in the near future. My artistic nature turned from visual art to writing when I got older, although I always hope I’ll get the inspiration to paint again. I have paints and canvases, just in case the mood strikes.I used to love painting until I failed because of theory. I did a few in oil including a self portrait. Also tried a few using Kadinsky’s technique with geometric shapes. Maybe I should post a few.Very pretty; I like the quilt out front! You could just lay on that and gaze up at the clouds all day. I, on the other hand, would take pictures of them.Love the quilt on the fence, it entices the visitor with expectations of a warm, cozy ambiance inside, despite its simple facade.@Sire: I was the same way. I did lots of artsy things, and then failed a basic drawing course my first semester in college. That hurt my art, until I got to the point that I believed art is subjective, and just because I can’t see a geometric shape in a tree does not mean I can’t do it. You should definitely post some!@Richard: You sound like me, more likely to photograph an experience than to experience it. I have had to work on finding that balance.@Miruh: I based that off of the kind of quilting my grandmother used to do. She would just take leftovers of mismatched fabrics and create quilts with them.I reckon I might just do that. 🙂Comments are closed.
