Gin White :: Subtle Harmony
Who knew I would love painting so much? Actually, I think I somehow always knew. Because for as long as I can remember, my fingers have itched to hold a paintbrush, and I wanted my living space to have an easel where I painted, even as a kid. Writing (fiction) was always my thing, but I used to say that if I could have two talents I didn't already have, I would love to be able to sing and I would love to be able to paint.
These past few years of allowing myself to paint, after decades of believing painting was something I simply could not do and I can't paint things that look like real things and so I had "no right" to paint at all... well, painting has been one of my saving graces the past few years. I let myself play with the paint. I do it for the joy of doing it. And it helps me in more ways than I can say.
This is the latest canvas I'm working on, smaller than my usual, but I'm enjoying experimenting with different sizes and different things.
