Getting Creative

I went to Michael's tonight to get me @marigaki painting professionally framed.  It's going to look beautiful!  Like something that should be hanging in a museum.  I'll post a photo once I get it back.  Anyway, it's impossible to go into that place and not have the creative juices start flowing.  You want to just start creating everything.  I want to draw, I want to paint, I want to, well let me stop right there.  I don't want to scrapbook, I don't want to needlepoint, so I do have my limitations...LOL  

I had been messing around with oils more lately, and I have started to grow tired of them, so I've decided to get back into acrylics.  It's been a while since I've done any painting with acrylics, but I remember how fun it used to be, and sometimes oil painting can be a chore.  Don't get me wrong, it's still a nice creative outlet, but with my anxiety & OCD (that I've spoken about before), the drying process can start to cause problems for me mentally.  If you've ever done oil painting before, you know what I'm talking about.  I like working with a lot of different layers, so this is where the problems start to occur.  I'm really looking forward to throwing down a sketch tomorrow and getting the paints out.  It's going to be a lot of fun.  

Today, I've added a few more things to the site, and will probably add a few more in the days to come (the same type of concept).  They are some of my YouTube playlists (that you'll find under the Entertainment tab) at the top of this page.  Of course, most people may find them boring, but if you have the same taste in things that I do, you may find them interesting and might decide to hang around for a while.  YOU are the peeps that I want to hear from, so drop me a line in the Contact section and let's share some crazy stories, ideas, etc, that probably only the two of us would understand.  Some of you know what I mean...

Peace, and I hope you're enjoying the weekend! 

...and then, I have nature and art and poetry, and if that is not enough, what is enough?
