i used to paint and draw a lot when i was seven  (i took summer workshops on painting for like a year) until when i was in highschool. i painted a lot. i even thought i'd take up a degree in arts, but i didn't. it has been a long time since i last painted for myself. i usually draw or paint and give it away to others. most of my works when i was younger aregone because of the floodings in our area. i managed to save one, my favorite, which was my very first painting when i was only seven. i just have to look for it somewhere in our house.
