Google+ That Flour Child: Starting Somewhere...

Starting Somewhere...

So I'm not exactly sure how to start this post.  Or what to call it.  Or what category to put it under.  But you gotta start somewhere! Amiright?

BUT I'm posting this because I hope to start posting some of these more frequently, and although this may not be the best painting in the world, I hope that I will be able to look back on these and see how much I've improved.

I, in no way think that I am a painter or artist.. I believe I am good at creating things.

And as a firm believer in quotes I wanted a colourful and unique way to put some quotes up on my wall.  Right now I have a wall beside my desk with just sad black and white print outs stuck up there and although full of motivational quotes, isn't motivating.  It's just grey and black and white and I like colour.  So I picked up some cheap watercolour supplies at Michael's and started messing around... This is the first one I like so far.

I believe these are the words of JFK (that's what the picture I got it from claimed).

Happy Thursday!
I just finished my second midterm of the week and am getting ready for the long drive home for Thanksgiving later today.
Do you guys do anything like this? Do you paint? Any tips for me? Leave them in the comments!

  1. I love how colourful you've made this! I always find if I make a drawing or something with my favourite quote I seem to remember it so much better too. Hope your midterms went well, I can't believe it's Thanksgiving already, I thought it wasn't until November!

    1. Thank you so much!
      Maybe you are thinking about American Thanksgiving, I'm pretty sure it is in November... but the Canadian one is this weekend!
