lately i have had the urge to paint.
real paint on real canvas and stuff.
and to use words like gesso and underpainting.
i am conflicted by the douchey asshole in me that thinks they can paint
and the who gives a fuck awesome person in me that will do it anyway.
i know i have a little artist in me. (douche douche douche)
it's in the genes.
and..i have had some schooling on the subject..a wee bit.
but that just really doesn't matter.
i don't believe school necessarily makes you good at something
(unless we're talking medical school)
in fact i think a lot of the time it affects natural talent in a negative way.
(spoken like a true asshole)
i am inspired by interior design.
the photos above, if you squint your eyes, LOOK like paintings.
it's the composition of the color and texture in them that i am inspired by.
not as easy as it may look to put together.
some examples of getting it right:
lot's of bloggers are turning into artists, some good...some...meeehhh..
what are your thoughts?
any artisty advice for me?
cheap paint sources?
i aim to share my art stuffs with you.
even if it sucks dick.
this is mine.
michelle armas super painter painted this just for me.
i was going to wait until next week
when she delivers it to show it to you.
but i can't.
it's too awesome and it holds powers greater than my brain capacity for keeping secrets.
she asked me for inspiration and in short i said "lavender and yellow".
i got so much more than that.
she really is a genius at capturing YOU in her work.
i can't wait to hang it above my fireplace.
pictures of that next week.
