one of the many components that helps make this person that i call, me, is a passion and love for art. art soothes me. art is everlasting and runs through my blood. i'm extremely disappointed to inform you all that i haven't dabbled in my art abilities in a very long time, why? good question. i cannot answer that. regardless, i do tend to see the beauty of everyday things artistically. and in reality, i really can't say that i haven't dabbled in it at all. i have been using my artistic abilities through photography as opposed to sketching and painting which most would say is my "forte".
growing up i was always drawing and painting. i cant really remember a time when i wasn't. my father, in the sperm donor sense, was also artistically able-bodied. lol. we would draw/sketch together. i love sketching. as i got older the sketching turned into acrylic painting. i went through an extremely rough time during my early teen years and one of the ways to deal with it was through painting.
recently, i thought about picking up some sketch pencils and a sketch book and start drawing again. it's extremely therapeutic. and why not? gives me something else to do since yanno, i don't do much of anything already. ha ha! jokes.
so here are a few of my faaaavourite artists/paintings. one of them is my own replica.
