Hi, lovabull.  First I love your name.  It makes me smile.  Second:  it sounds like you have come up with a great outlet for your creativity.  I love all the different ideas that people think of to express themselves.  Perhaps you could think about sharing some pictures of your work,  Whereas we no longer have the galleries that we once had we still enjoy seeing each other's accomplishments.

Hi All,  Funny story regarding my uh hem "artistic endeavors" . For many years I doodled and did personal creations. Murals for my kids walls, grape vines on the garage, a whole step way in an apartment, yellow with vines and flowers growing from every point.

 

The kids loved it, the neighbors not so much sometimes. But only in the last year have I found an audience. I work for a big box hardware store. The only uniform code is an orange apron...so you know who it isSmiley Wink

 

But we can decorate those aprons any way we want, from just a scribbled name to full decor. I discovered acrylic paints and permanent marker work rather well on the material. One young co-worker asked me to decorate one for her.

 

My first thought was she might appreciate a graffitti look, maybe some bright flowers. So I taught myself graffiti style. Then word got around about the flowers...twenty two people on my request list so far whooo hoooo. Just fun seeing how many folks are wearing "my aprons" and weekly requests for more.

 

I also dropped my name in the painting contractor box. What the heck right? If I can paint eight foot cats and castles in the sky for my kids, why not get paid to do them for somebody else?

Hello Jen and expressive drawing members! I joined a couple months ago, but have not been very active the last month or so because I've been busy with THIS! I've never done a series with a "purpose" before. 10 pieces total for The International March to End The Death Penalty. http://praeglow.wix.com/marchforlifegallery. Thank you Expressive Drawing community for support and encouragement in my journey back to painting.
