Greetings from Cleveland!
Well, I'm on here because I mentioned in passing to my girlfriend of a thought or two of dabbling in the arts because some family members of mine have shown artistic talent (my grandfather, who turned 95 today, was a professional artist). I always considered having talent in writing, but hey, why not the visual medium too? I mean, I work as a production artist to pay my bills, so I have some ability! At least I have a solid understanding of colors. Long story short, my girlfriend bought me some starter art supplies as a Chanukah present! So, now I really gotta use 'em! I think I just need an easel, ha.
I'm the first to admit, however, I can't draw stick people to save my life. So, already looking way ahead, I only really see myself doing abstract or themes. Obviously, I'm in this to enjoy the flowing of creative juices and take pride in whatever I may inflict upon a canvas.
Wish me luck as I wish you all the same!
