I'm a messy worker!
Ted gave me a lot of the supplies I needed to start learning to oil paint for Christmas. I'm doing online tutorials. So far I've tried lessons from Wilson Bickford, Marion Dutton, and Andrew Whyte. They've all been lots of fun, and most importantly I'm learning a lot of new techniques. Eventually my goal is to be able to create original paintings of my own.
When I get really into creating a drawing or painting time just seems to fly. "Getting in the zone" while doing something enjoyable is supposed to be really good for mental and physical health - something to do with stress relief!
I'm looking forward to visiting the other blogs on the hop now that my post is finished to see the creative things others have been doing.
