Here we go...

Alright, I've been thinking about this for a while and figured why not. I do occasionally have something to say and someone might like to read it. It might not always be exciting, but too bad.

So, why an inpatient artist? Well, I don't like to wait obviously. When I paint, I usually use acrylics because they dry faster. I like to work with markers as well. I love water color, but I make them as large as I can and tend to do a lot of glazing and washes, and I start at the top and go down. They're fairly big because when I do get to the bottom, the top is pretty close to dry. (My watercolors tend to look like my marker drawings.) I also create most of my artwork on the computer first - there's not a lot of mess and I can fool around with colors without have to start over; again time saving. I like the instant gratification of scrapbooking. I don't have to have any one else's approval but mine. Don't get me wrong, I make sure I get the job done right, but I try to get it done quickly and correctly.

Okay, so that it for the explanation. Those of you who know me, know I tend to talk and walk fast. I'm terrible at waiting on people. Enough said. I'm not sure how oftern I'll do this, but I'll try to keep things recent. TTFN!
