Making art on my iPad

Posted on June 9, 2012 at 6:10pm 2 Comments

Over a year ago, I gave away hundreds of dollars worth of beads because my obsession with beading had run its course.

Then I took up drawing. Soon my small apartment was filled with drawing and painting supplies. My magical magnifying mind thinks that if I just buy more supplies, I will finally be able to DRAW.

As a result, I was soon crowded out by art supplies.

When I look back on my art journey, the only real satisfaction I had was drawing zentangle inspired… READ MORE

Another art experiment

Posted on March 4, 2012 at 5:44pm 0 Comments

The other day, I bought a set of Beinfang Watercolor Brush Pens. When I got them home, I discovered that they are very similar in construction to my waterbrushes.

I like the Beinfang Watercolor Brushes, but they are expensive. I believe they are refillable, but I can't find a source for paint.

Then I found liquid watercolor for use in schools. This stuff looks like it would work. It's inexpensive, but heavy and shipping would more than double the price.


Should I give up ny artist dream and become a drafts(person)man?

I am drawn to abstract art. I like art where the color is flowing. I admire people who can render an exact image, but I have no desire to learn their skills. Nor do I want to join the "more water than paint" school of watercolorists.

I want real color. Lots of it. I want it to be abstract. I don't plan, nor do I wish I could plan.

So why is it that in my hand, paint wants to appear organized on the paper? instead of flowing waves, I get squares and circles marching in… READ MORE

Retired. Finally.

Posted on January 25, 2012 at 12:33pm 3 Comments

Actually, I've been "retired" from my job as a computer programmer for about 10 years, but I've tried to "keep up" with that world. I have a recurring dream where I announce at the end of the day that I'm quitting and won't be back at my desk tomorrow. I didnt know what the dream was trying to tell me.

Years ago I read an article about a retired man who would suit up every morning and spend the day haunting his former workplace. How pathetic, I thought.

This morning while… READ MORE
