So, when I started seriously trying to make art, my only goal really, was to learn to paint. Prior to that, I had never picked up a paint brush. So for the next four years, that is all I did. Every project was painted. And, I was learning. But when art school ended, I graduated, and no one wanted paintings. Only digital. So I began to learn how to make digital art. The other day I realized that as a result, I haven't painted in 5 years. I missed it. So, I tried again. Starting small, with the birds that frequent the back yard.. I'm very very rusty. A little disappointed at how much I've forgotten, and the drawings are a little wonky, but here we go. To painting!
