The Love of Painting

You start with a blank canvas. The possibilities are endless. The most time that will be spent on your painting is the amount of time it takes to decide what it is you’d like to paint.

Eventually you are struck with an idea and the paint is squeezed onto the palette. The colors are bright and pure, it’s almost a shame you have to mix them together. You select a brush and gingerly dip the tip of it into the pigment. Slowly you pull the bright cerulean blue into the neighboring cobalt while in awe at how satisfying this action is.

Your desired color has been created, so you lift your brush towards the canvas and pull the paint across the fabric. The canvas is no longer blank and you have begun a journey through frustration, excitement, and wonder.
