Last weekend I took the time to paint for the first time in a while. Maybe a year. Crazy. I used to paint so much in college, specifically 2014. I loved it. It was a way for me to unwind, be creative for creative’s sake, work with a new medium where *clicking and deleting* isn’t really an option. You’ve got to be brave with your stroke, it takes confidence in your own eye. And if you mess up, you have to find a way to add to it with new colors or strokes to make it work. It takes my eyes off a screen, where most of my day is spent being digitally creative, and get’s me lost in a canvas of color. I love it.
From my last post, you saw my inspiration swelling up from the Pantone colors of the year. I took that inspiration and put it on a blank canvas. It felt so good to sit and let a brush dip in paint and glide across a textured surface. To think abstractly. To make art for art’s sake.
