It's almost like there are these periods where our relationship is smooth and steady, and then there are times when it's like standing on the edge of this gorgeous, wonderful waterfall and just letting yourself drop, knowing that there's a safe pool of water ready to catch you at bottom. You take the plunge and you're in wayyyy over your head, but oh man, it's exhilarating, it's breathtaking, it's just incredible and you feel better than you ever have before and the water is cool and refreshing and exactly what you needed.

Sam is my waterfall.

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!
