I have a fascination and appreciation for art and photography. When we built our house, I had a tough time finding artwork that fit the style of each room perfectly, so I painted a lot of my own. I’ve been into art my entire life and was once considered to be pretty good at it. Since leaving college, I’ve haven’t had as much time to put into it. But, I don’t think you ever lose creative ability. I don’t expect that anyone would ever want to purchase anything I’ve done, but it’s something I love and something that moves me. This year for Christmas with money being kinda tight, I’ve decided to give several family members paintings as gifts. Painting has been something that I’ve only ever done for myself, so I’m a little nervous about putting myself “out there” with these gifts. What if they don’t like them? What if they think it’s just a cheap way out of buying a gift? I’m already committed, though. I ordered some really cool square canvases last week and should get them in and be able to get started soon.
Here are the ones I have in my house:
There’s also several things I love that I didn’t create but are still worthy of sharing.
