Lets talk paint!


So for a change I’d like to talk about painting. what do you like to paint most? what kind of materials do you prefer?  Do you have a picture you can share. Even If you don’t paint feel free to share your favorite form of art you work in. From writing to sculpting what do you love?

I love to paint, I have for a long time . When I was in school Art was my best subject, the short time I spent in high school it was Art and technical design. I also joined a writers group that was short lived. From middle school on I won many awards, from 1st place to 3rd. This doesn’t mean I’m some awesome artist, I am just someone who loves all forms of art!

I painted this for my older brother and his now wife as a wedding present. (see photo at top) The colors in there wedding where the same as mine, red, black, and white, so the painting is to. I searched for the perfect close up of a flower to get inspiration from. I was going to go for realism and realized that just isn’t me, I want it to be from the hart. I love ow it came out. Nice stretched canvas, and oil paints, I only work with oils painting. At the time I painted this it had bin almost five years since I had painted a thing. I love It, and I am so happy to be painting again, even with limited time. I have a 8 year old, 2 1/2 year old, and 1 1/2 year old boys at home, things get busy in our house.

So there it is my favorite piece of my work, that I still have. I used to sell, but I have gotten better and want to start selling again. so far I have one I’m 1/2 done with it and it’s already sold! she asked for it and told me what she wanted, but I had an idea for part of it I think she will love.

Can’t wait to see and read about all of you.


About artfulhelix

I'm a mother to three beautiful boys, 8 years, 2 years, and 1 year old, all there birthdays in April with mine (very busy month). I am a wife to a wonderful man who supports every thing I want to do. I have 10 piercings and 11 tattoos, more tattoos coming soon. I am an artist, painting, tattooing, sculpting (haven't done that for a long time), poetry, and a few small crafts. As an artist I felt writing was the next logical step for me. I am enjoying every minute of it, writing, blogging (never thought I would blog), and critiquing. I not only want to talk about my book and the writing proses, but art in general in my blog. I would like to share a poem I wrote a few years ago, but is so me. I came up with it when a very old woman came up to me on the side walk and said " Do you know you are going to hell?" laughing a little inside I said "No, why am I going to hell?" "Because you have desecrated the lords temple with all your piercings and tattoos!" She looks so serious when she said this. I said "I'm not desecrating, I'm decorating!" well that made her mad of course, and she stomped off. later I wrote this: You look at me that way in disgust and disdain I’m pierced and tattooed I must be insane But who are you to judge when you kneel down and pray Just because our beliefs are not the same We are not so different you and I for we are all the same when we die This is nothing against religion, merely about judgment in general. Can't wait to share more of what I love and who I am.
