Creating objects of fine art from the wild visions in my mind.

Oh My Girl

This is an age old question. I have asked this of myself several times in my life.  I do not believe that I have ever written about this aspect of my life before.  I have discussed it with my friends and family a lot. I just finished a drawing that took a month to draw.

I started it on September 10, 2010 and I finished it on October 10, 2010. My Landmark Education training confirmed my belief that life is a game.  I like creating games to motivate my life.  I had not drawn a picture in about two years so I wanted to kick start my artistic brain with some inspiration.  I said that I was going to draw a picture in one month.  Now I needed something to draw.

Usually I do not have a problem coming up with ideas for a drawing.  I am one of those artist that creates art with an improvisational style.  I call my type of art Colored Acid Jazz. My brain has always run amuck when I stare up at clouds in the sky or get lost in a marble tile floor.  My imagination makes images out of random patterns based on what is going through my mind at the moment.  My artistic motto is '

I can not draw a straight line'. Even when I use a ruler to draw I eventually deviate so far away from the original goal that it even amazes me. Sometimes getting side tracked is not a good thing, but when I am drawing it is when I have the most fun and freedom.
