I painted when I was happy, sad, tired, under pressure and drunk.
I never really needed a reason to paint I just always did.
And then I just didn't sort of do it for a while, I'm not incredibly sure why. But I do have a theory that its because I was trying to sell what I painted and I was trying to get commissions and to be honest I just wasn't very good at it.
I like painting what I want to paint!
Which is why one evening when I actually didnlt feel like sewing [I know its really rare!] I got out my brushes and found the paints and canvas my mum and dad had brought for me and got cracking.
I sat myself on the carpet, stuck on desperate housewives season 5 [Mike you know you love Susan stop being a moron] and got cracking.
I did actually have a terrifying moment when I wondered if I would be able to remember how to do this,
and then two hours later I had this.
Well this and cramp in my foot!!
I'm not sure why I chose David Bowie, He has a interesting face so that factored in but I really love his music as well!
I'm pleased with how it turned out and it was actually pretty nice to take a break from sewing for an evening!
I dunno what I'm going to do with it now though, I never put the things I paint up on my walls so I'll probably try and sell it!
