Art By Me | “After The Gala”, 2018. Mixed Media.

22. March 2018

 

I thought maybe some of you might want to see my own work. Even though, admittedly I haven’t really sketched for a while, I’ve been getting into it again. Since the weather lately has made it very hard to shoot pictures even inside due to the darkness, I grabbed my pastel paintings and started to sketch and paint this picture. I made it with the full intention to add those realistic elements just for fun. Call it a little experiment.

My Mom, who is both a pedagogue and a teacher still has amongst her treasures my first drawing, when I was just 2 years old (yes, so small!). As an educational scientist she states that most little children at that age have not fully developed their motor skills and can barely draw circles and lines. Therefore. she was in awe when she saw that despite my young age, I drew a rabbit with detailed ears, arms, legs, tail, form and all. Of course, she’s my Mom and moms always exaggerate, since see you with the lens of love. I’m still no Picasso nor Renoir and I’m as far as possible from being that.

Art has been a big part of my life since I was a kid, when my mom always had a desk for me with a giant drawer full of paints, color pencils, markers, and paper for me to grab it whenever I felt like it. However, now that I’m older, I’ve discovered that it has a great healing power over me. I’ve gathered a gazillion sketches of stuff I would like to paint over the years, sort of like ‘visions’, but never find time to. Perhaps it’s fear of not being good enough, as once a professor in uni  didn’t accept my paintings for an architecture faculty exhibition, since he found them too ‘childish’. That being said, at the end you are the only one who should be happy with your art and not comprimise it to the general masses’ tastes or expectations. And even though an artwork is never really finished, but more like abandoned (you can never detail it enough), I don’t think it turned out that bad. Or at least, I’m kinda happy with it. x
