Creating my art takes me to another place. I’m in the zone where time flies and I don’t hear the surrounding noises. The music is on, but I don’t remember any of the songs that played.
I work on several paintings at one time. So while one is drying, I can start on another one. I get ideas at different times and from different things, but 5 am is when I have gotten some of my best ideas. Sometimes a light bulb goes off in my head with an idea.
I enjoy painting with acrylics and adding mixed media. I like to put whimsical things in my paintings, because I like to see people smile when they view my artwork. I love to create things that people haven’t seen before.
I remember getting drawing and paintings sets instead of toys from my Great Aunt and Uncle when I was younger. Growing up I always had arts and craft supplies around the house. I think watching cartoons and sitcoms when I was younger (don’t tell anyone, but I still watch cartoons) has kept me painting quirky and funny art.
