Art

As part of my quest for hobbies and skills, I have taken up painting and sketching. I’m definitely not a trained or experienced artist, so it benefits me to believe that art is subjective and can be interpreted in many different ways by its audience. I find artistic expression to be very soothing, and my methodical approach to painting is a great outlet for stress and anxiety. Although normally I would feel insecure about sharing my creations with others, I think that challenging myself to do so would strengthen my connection to the world around me.

Feedback is always welcome, and I thank you for indulging my creative spirit! See below for a few samples of my work – I hope to look back on these in a few months as a measure of progress.
