I love to draw and paint. I also enjoy scrapbooking and making cards for people. My husband has a large box full of cards and things I have made for him since we first met. My favorite thing to do would probably be oil painting. I haven't had any formal instruction in working with oils since we were only taught acrylics and watercolors, so I'm kind of learning as I go. I really enjoy it though because you can leave the surface wet and come back to work on it instead of having it dry quickly. I work slowly and in small areas at a time, so it works much better for me than other mediums I've tried. I'm adding a photo of a painting that I did my freshment year in college. It was my first attempt at oil painting, so I think it turned out pretty well for something I had never tried before!

I'm probably a little more artistic in the written sense, I did really well in art at school though... Was going to do it at uni (painting) but in the end I decided I would do a Bachelor of Education and teach :D
