Are you an artist? I mean, can you see a picture in your head, and transfer that image to canvas with paint and brushes?
I’m not. To me, people who can do that are on par with those musical geniuses who can hear a song, and then sit down at the piano and play it without any sheet music in front of them. I could never do that either.
But I need a piece of artwork to bring some color to John & Alice’s mantel, and in the last week, I’ve been inspired by two paintings to perhaps try my hand at painting a real, actual piece of artwork. The though of that makes me nervous, but perhaps there’s a budding artist inside of me just waiting to express herself on canvas. Maybe. Maybe not. But I have this image in my head, and I have this feeling inside like I can’t rest until I get that image onto canvas. I’ve been inspired…
Aren’t those beautiful? I really want to try my hand at creating something similar, with the colors of the first painting, but the watery, subtle quality of the second. The thought makes me nervous. I wouldn’t even know where to begin.
Perhaps I’ll just ask my mom to paint it for me.
