I wanted to share some recent painting projects that I've done to hopefully encourage everyone to try and make something. The first thing I made was a Valentine's Day unicorn card for my girlfriend. I used blank paper, my poster paints, some gold ribbon for it. This got me thinking also about what's my definition of art. And I realized that my definition of art is pretty simple: Art is whatever I want to make. I also like my art to serve a purpose and also to have some kind of storytelling element. I don't like creating anything with rules, so my definition is pretty broad. I just like anything creative.
I had another fun project for my fish's bowl. I got the idea because I saw my girlfriend's roommate made one and thought I'd make one myself. I decided to do a panorama painting that can circle around my fishes bowl so he can look at something fun and colorful. I also used poster paint for it and just had a ton of fun.
I encourage everyone to try little painting projects like these because it's so fun to make something and all you need are really basic supplies!
