Art has always been a part of my life. Influences from my family or influences from The shows I watched, it always excited me. Graphic design ‘found’ me and for that, I’ll always be glad.
However, there are times when I experience an ‘artist block’. Those days, I bring out my art supplies and let myself go.
Time was limited in my new phase of life as well. I needed some down time, some me time, some relaxing time. Out of that, came this. . .

Oil on canvas is amazing. Oil on canvas paper? Even better. Though it seems like you are cheating by taking a few short cuts, the exhilaration of finally putting paint to canvas cannot be denied.
This is my cure every time I need to jump start my creativity. What is yours?
