Welcome to the site! I hope you enjoy what’s here and get the help you need as well as find some inspiration.
I have always enjoyed art. All kinds of art. I enjoy making it as well as admiring it. I found even when I was young I had a natural talent for drawing and sculpting. I truly loved to draw, I did it all the time. I was in art classes in high school, and I created projects on my own time. My whole family seems to have some sort of artistic streak in them. My siblings and I would even create art for our mother to give her on mother’s day, her birthday and even Christmas. She still has several of these pieces on display in her house.
But then something happened. I don’t know how, or why, but I stopped. I didn’t really create anything artistic for several years. I think life just got in the way. I had other things consuming my mind. I would occasionally think about doing something, but then the thought would pass, never to return. I forgot who I was.
In 2016, My life took a dramatic shift, and I began to see what was important to me in life. I had lost so many of the dreams and aspirations that I once had as a young man. I wanted those things back, I wanted to be myself again. One of the things that brought me back was painting.
I was sitting in my living room, unemployed, bored, and depressed. Flipping through NETFLIX for something to fill the time. What did I find? Bob Ross! I had watched Bob as a kid and was always amazed at how easy he made painting seem. How quickly he could turn a canvas into something people wanted to look at. So I began watching. One episode, then another, and another. Soon, I started saying to myself, “I CAN DO THAT”. My wife noticed, and for Christmas she bought me a beginner’s painting set and some canvas. Within days, I had pumped out several paintings, each better than the last. I began to remember how good it felt to create art. Then people started noticing my art and complimenting me on it. THAT FELT EVEN BETTER! THANKS BOB!
Now I paint regular, and use it to relax. Its fun! My wife and I go on dates to paint nights and enjoy it together. I think that everyone is capable of creating something artistic. Remember back to when you were a kid, we all loved it when it was art class in school. I think that is because everyone is creative in some form or another. So go out there and make something! Draw, paint, sculpt, take photos. Write a song, poem, or story. What ever you do, create something your own and don’t forget who you are inside.
