So I have decided that I want to paint. I don't know if I'll be any good at it, but oh well. I bought some brushes, a set of acrylic paints and a set of small canvas board thingies to get started... except I really don't know what to paint. I could just stare at the canvas for an hour and still not think of anything... so anybody want to give me some fun (and possibly easy to paint) suggestions??

Today has been good. Nathan and I went to Sweet Tomatoes for lunch, then to the craft store where I bought my paint supplies. We also made a stop at the liquor store to get some stuff for tomorrow. We're going to Lincoln City for our anniversary. I'm excited. I already put most of my stuff together. Just gotta get my check in the morning before we leave and maybe buy a few snack foods. I hope the weather is decent at the beach...

Is anybody else annoyed by that Wendy's "sensational!" commercial?
I'm feeling...: excitedexcited

You might consider some teach yourself art books. That should get you started at least.

You guys have fun at the beach! I'm jealous. =)

eh... I took a painting class in high school, so I learned about shading and some stuff... I don't want to just paint landscape after landscape, but I just don't know what to paint. I can be creative as long as I know what I'm supposed to be doing... does that make sense? Like if I had an assignment, I could probably do something really neat with it. I suck at coming up with things out of thin air.

Cool I been thinking about doing photos and overlaying them with my poetry.

Do it. Then sell it.

That is my plan but I want to get hold of a decent digital camera (probably borrow my mom's) and find a good day to take quality photos

I'm sure that once you do, you'll know exactly what I mean...
