i love art. i love music. i love design. i love theatre. i love photography. i love film. i love any artistic endeavor.
i long to design sets and lighting. paint and do graphic design. write and play music. write poetry and prose. i would love to write a script or screenplay. i would love to film a documentary.
i’ve been a musician since grade school and still make my living doing that, but yesterday and today…for the first time…i painted.
it’s not a great painting, and you can’t actually call it painting, because i didn’t use a brush. i just had a canvas and an idea.
this picture isn’t going to hang in a gallery or a museum. it’s just for my office, but it’s the start of me living out some of my creative dreams.
i painted it with several guitar picks that i superglued to some pencil stubs.
so i feel as if i accomplished something.
i feel as if my biggest struggle in being artistic is that i have all of these whacked out ideas in my head, but no real way of fleshing them out. i want to unleash these ideas, but need help.
