    Painting

    Advertisements
    Who paints??



    This past Semester I took a Basic Design & Color Art class and I absolutly LOVED it. The last part of the Semester was b&w & color painting. Im not a big drawer.. In fact, I SUCK at drawing. & I usally ruin things when I paint them. But I obviously did good enough because I gotta "A" in the class. But since I've been pretty bored lately, & still have 9 days before DB comes home. I was thinking about putting a painting together for us. My final art project was a Symbolic Self Portrate. So I used 4 different Chineese Symbols to describe me. And I was thinking about doing a painting in the Chineese Symbols that says "Allyssa & William Forever."

    & I was just wondering who else paints just because? Or as a job? It's pretty fun.. And takes up ALOT of time.

    I enjoy painting as well. I took a watercolor class one summer, and I've been dabbling with oils. I've worked with acrylics my entire life. 2 of my Christmas gifts this year were oil paintings (I'll post pics later.)

    I was an art major so I had to do a lot of painting/drawing, etc.

    I worked at a "Paint-your-own-pottery Studio for a year (you go and pick out a ceramic piece, paint it with glaze, and then we would fire it for you and you can take it home) - it was really cool and I got to paint a TON of ceramics and teach classes, etc. while working there.

    I just paint w/ Acrylics. I accidently bought a tube of orange oil paint, & didn't notice it till I tried painting with it & ruined my brush. IDK how that oil paint works, lol.

    I've oil painted before. I really like it, but have a hard time getting my idea started on the canvas. I draw occassionally. I like charcoal, but mostly I like painting furniture and walls!! Just the regular old painting! HAHA!! It relaxes me to no end! I just LOVE IT! Including trim! HAHA!! I'm weird I know!!! My mom is the same way! HEHE!!!

    My husband used to paint, I dont know why he doesnt anymore but he is VERY good. Most of his work is very ummm "dark" and kinda twisted though.

    I paint and draw, when I have the inspiration, I was thinking about being an art major but can't think of a way to make money at it.
