Dabbling in the Real World
While I like working with my hands, I’ve spent a large portion of my life trying to convince myself that they shake a little too bad to paint.
A friend of mine got me into painting with watercolors, because the supplies are pretty inexpensive and the medium is very forgiving if you accidentally splotch in the wrong place. I make it a point to try to do something small, like the strip above or the ones below, at least once every week or so. It’s a pleasant break from the computer monitor and I feel, pleasantly enough, like I’m eleven again doing arts and crafts.
