A new resolution…

dscn1852I’ve always been a dabbler.  From painting to baking and yes… even in writing at times, dabbling here and there to see what works best.  This weekend will be no exception.  There is something about painting that I enjoy.  I am not one of those who can sit and paint for hours.  No, I’m a dabbler in the sense that I do 30-1 hr sessions, either on the floor painting or on the couch.  I’m not fancy, but I do feel that there is more of a creative pull than there would be if I were sitting at a table.  It isn’t something I can explain. I haven’t always painted.  I really began only in highschool in grade 13 art class when we were allowed to do whatever we wanted and even after, I stopped doing much painting.  At xmas, however, I took it up again and realized just how much I had missed it when I painted my mom this picture (she’d been after me for years to paint her something).

I decided that this year, I would set time to paint more.  Now I just need to figure out what exactly.  Any suggestions?  I do better with scenery… hmm… I’m thinking a mountainous scene this time but I guess I’ll figure it out!
