I entered two of my paintings in a contest.
I don't have a lot of high hopes of them winning, but I'm not totally convinced that they won't.
I thought I'd post them here for all to see. Please don't post and tell me you hate them. Just shake your head and move on. :D
If I do place in the contest, my painting(s) will be placed in an art show, and put up for sale. That would be so cool!
Now, all of you, go out and do something fun. If your dream is to be a painter, go for it. If it's writing, give it all you've got. Or, if you're like me and you can't decide what to do with yourself, try a little of everything.
And if you have no idea what might interest you, try something. Take an acting class. Buy a Wii. Becoming a video game master is something to be proud of, too. :D Throw some pottery. And if it doesn't turn out well, throw it at the wall. You might find it relieves a lot of stress. Try decorating your house. You might have a knack for it. Garden. Cook. Scrapbook. Get a book about finding your passion. Organize a play group. Or a book club. Or a hairbow-making or card-making group. Hike. Run. Jetski. Sit in the park and stare at the sky, contemplating the universe. Sit down with a piece of paper and brain dump on the page about anything and everything that comes to mind, whether it makes sense or not. Maybe you'll find something you want to do in the middle of the whole mess.
Sorry, I'm getting carried away, I think. Maybe I should have just said, "Wish me luck."
