Here goes! I'm starting this blog as a daily exercise in reminding myself to be more creative. I've been missing the creative element in my life, spending most of my time working in a field other than the creative one. I have a lot of other interests, and those might show up from time to time, but I'll focus more on art and any crafts that I might be working on.
This is the first painting I've done in quite a while. I've usually only had time to draw, but I'm determined to make time to paint. This was from a picture that I took last summer, it's not finished yet. I still have to play up the sense of light. I spend so much time on the little details that I'm sometimes oblivious to the light play until I step back an really look. I'll work on this more after I've been away from it for a while. A good start, I believe.
