A place to stray…..

Oils, Watercolour and Acrylic

As an artist, I like to paint in various mediums. I have favoured watercolours, for some considerable time, as they were accessible and ‘easier’ for me to use, even from an early age. I liked the softness and feel of them, although didn’t master the fluidity, until some years later. As the years, passed by, I became more interested in acrylics and oils, which offered some variety and fun. The paints were ‘gloopier’ and more malleable. I suddenly lost some of the intrinsic restraint that I had felt with watercolours; I could splodge and move the paint around.

I find, now that painting brings me great joy and freedom and stops any feeling of  negativity from entering the old grey matter. Art Therapy? Oh yes, when I can become totally absorbed by drawing and painting. There is always the thought that I am lucky to be able to do this wonderful pastime. I would encourage anyone to take up their pencils or buy a box of paints and give it a try, you never know, you may just enjoy it too!

Well, the first thing to remember, is…….New Beginnings

The first thing to remember, is that my PC got hit badly by a trojan, last year and my files got badly damaged, after the assault. It basically meant that I lost all my poetry and my artwork and general photographs, became a mangled mess of misery. I have one folder with 32,000+ pictures in it and half are ruined the others in jumbled order. It will take a long time to sort them, but I thoroughly intend to. I am going through all the accessible pictures and watermarking them for the Shopping Gallery. Life is meant to be a challenge, if you see every challenge as an opportunity.

On a lighter note, the wonderful Dr David R Hamilton has helped me, with replying to a question I had about self-healing. He is a lovely man and he had time to do that, for me. I now, feel much more focussed on the visualisations to help heal my nervous system. Life is good! Thank you David!
