Wannabe.



I've always gravitated to the arts, even though I've never considered myself an artist. I'm kind of a wannabe artist, I guess.  Right now, I'm dabbling in painting.  I tried acrylic paints for months, but today I decided to switch to oil paints for the first time.  I was pleasantly surprised with how it turned out....



Right now, I'm taking my inspiration from other artists I admire while I work to find a style of my own. Today, I was inspired by the amazing artist, Lulie Wallace, who creates fantastic geometric floral paintings in bright, unexpected color combinations.  It was a lot of fun to experiment with loud colors and abstract florals.



My goal is to eventually create a piece of art I love enough to hang proudly on my bare dining room wall.  As for where I'm going to put my finished 'masterpiece' ...



Alright, I've got to go ... it looks like Patrick wants to play a game of fetch.  :)
