Something New, Something Old...

I am working on creating my very own painting.  Thus far, I have been copying.  In my initial post, I had said that I was taking up painting.  I guess what I really meant was that I am taking up acrylic painting.  I have actually been painting, off and on, for many years.  The painting that I am working on is going to take a while, because I have to do all the thinking, planning, executing, and angst-ing by my very own self.  It's hard.  And I am dealing with all those negative thoughts and desires to give up.  So, it may take a while...

In the meantime, I will regale you with a blast from the past.  I did several pencil drawings of the head of Michelangelo's David.  I must say that they turned out really nice, but I have lost the drawings.  I did an oil painting of it, though.
