Hello, random reader, I’m EK, I have always loved art, even from my earliest memories. But art was always that unreachable thing for master artist to create, not the likes of me. I was a no one only allowed to stand on the sidelines and view.
But I was always frustrated with the fact that art that was considered ‘great’ and ‘worthy’ was also stuffy and hard to understand. Collecting art was expensive, and what I wanted was so far out of my reach it could never be considered. And the stuff mass produced wasn’t what I really wanted to hang on my walls. I wanted original art, but I wanted my style and my opinions expressed.
So in a leap of frustration, I grabbed a pen, a brush, and a bucket of paint and leaped into the world of art completely untrained and blindly. And I loved it.
Whether I am any good is only an opinion. I know nothing I paint is fine art, and I’m fine with that. And yes, I’m aware nothing I paint will ever hang in some gallery. But I like it. It is casual, and frankly it is for anyone, not just the elite.
