I Don't Read All the Time

I thought I would reveal a little bit more about myself and post some samples of my hobby.  I have talked about how much I read and much I love all kinds of music.  This is one other thing I do.   I have no God Given talent.  I learned to paint with oils by technique.  There are some things I can do and a lot that I can't, but I put some some music that fits what I am painting, maybe Bob Marley or Kenny Chesney for the Caribbean and Enya or Gladys Knight for a soothing background mood and I get in the zone and can sit there for hours.

From our cabin at Signal Mountain Resort , Grand Teton National Park, Moran, Wy.   This is the view that Daughter #3 had from her office the four years she worked there.





It's one of those things, that I know enough to be dangerous. It is a good stress reliever, when I don't get frustrated. I have to remind myself I am doing it for me and my poor daughters that have to find somewhere to put these.

Yes you do have talent! The paintings are magnificent. I wish I was so lucky to have artistic ability. Nice work.

Lovely! What a talent you have! My mom was a wonderful artist and passed it on only to one of my sisters. Alas, I can only draw stick figures...

I love your paintings, especially the last one! I've often wished that I had some kind of artistic talent--I have NONE!

In response to your comment on my blog about Tom Cruise...yes, it was about the time he jumped on Oprah's couch that I became skeptical, too...

Those are wonderful. Hobbies feed the soul.

I love your paintings! I love to sew, but not just for the sake of sewing. I find the exercise of sewing to be very soothing and I can spend hours just going through all my scraps of fabric. But The most satisfying part is imagining the clothes on the subject I am sewing for. I have tried to paint and find it to be frustrating that I can't seem to make the finished product look the way I want it to! Thanks for stopping by.
