I have a thing for landscapes. I’m not sure why it is, but I always find myself drawing them with crayon or pencil crayon or doodling them with pen on printer paper at Second Cup. I had a wedding this weekend and as a person who strongly believes that “handmade” gifts are much more reflective of love than “purchased” gifts, I thought I should make them something. With a lack of pottery to donate to my “wedding gift charity” and no way of throwing up a few bowls by this past Saturday, I decided to take a wack at a painting. I have never really painted before unless you count grade 8 art class and the first time I used watercolours was this past fall when I needed to design a set of dishes.I wasn’t sure what the painting was going to turn out to be.. I just went at it and OF COURSE, it’s a landscape.
Needless to say I’m pretty excited about this painting and am stoked to hear what my wedding-giftees think of it, but they don’t get back from their honeymoon for another two weeks. So here it is on Arttime.
