So, I've taken up painting as a hobby, to keep my time filled, to be less bored, to enjoy my artistic side again.

I used to do polymer clay for that, but the arthritis is in my fingers now, and kneading the clay and working it is too painful. So, painting.

I'm using acrylics, and went hog wild buying a box of 56 colors, a ton of canvas boards, nice brushes, the whole nine yards. And I'm having FUN!

I can't paint real stuff very well yet. I'm working on one study of a mountainous landscape, I've made five copies of it so far, each somewhat better than the last, but none looking very authentic yet. But I see real improvement on each canvas, and that's a good thing. I'll be posting pics of my paintings as I finish them.

I'm also doing an art swap with my friend, M-A, he does amazing art, and I feel like I'm definitely getting the better end of the deal on this one!

So what creative things are you all doing these days? I admit to being out of touch and not being possessed of a single clue, so fill me in!
