I just want to paint

I wish to be a crazy painter.

Every now again I am overcome with a urge to paint, draw, take photo's. It doesn't happen often as it should, but it does happen. I was born to be an artist, my mother was, and since my grade 2 report card, comments have always been made about my interest in arts. This is what I do, and can't imagine doing any thing else. I guess this is why when my friend asked me if I wanted to go to semi permanent, I basically said yes without any further thought. For me especially, I need a forum like Semi P, to give me a good artistic kick up the ass.

I'm really looking forward to being there, surrounded by artistic people, feeling the vibe and hopefully soaking up some motivation to create great things. I need this as a motivation tool, to experience a little more of whats out there in the art world, and to keep my finger on the pulse. It's a little while away in June, but it gives me something to look forward to. Until then I will be saving money for airfares and a ticket.

Have I told you how much I love ghostpatrol?
I want an original for my house please. :)

It's a Bob Dylan sort of day

She's got everything she needs
She's an artist, she don't look back
She can take the dark out of nighttime
And paint the daytime black.

She Belongs to me - Bob Dylan

How much chocolate have you had?

Happy Easter!

I hope everyone has gotten their chocolate fix! I've nearly finished my stint here at my parents house. Wish I could stay for longer, I'm going to miss it. That's the problem with coming back, I always miss it so much when I leave. It's always pretty special coming back, seeing old friends and places, remembering the crazy times we've had together. My plan is to drive home today, and since I have Monday off, hopefully I will be able to get some little projects finished. Like my cupboard and maybe some new sketches. So by the end of the week hopefully I have a pretty white wardrobe before and after pics to show you all. That's all for now, I just wanted to drop in to say Happy Easter and will blog again through the week!

This where I'm blogging from...Parents are green thumbs it's safe to say
This is my retreat. :)

I'm sitting in an extremely comfy recliner at my parents house at the moment. While they are off having fun at the Byron Bay Blues Fest, I decided to come up home and make the most of their internet, dryer and food in the cupboard!

Well thats not the only reason, my mum has been hassling me for quite some time now to get stuck into boxes and boxes of stuff from a couple of times we have moved! For the last hour or so I have been reading a tissue box full of old highschool letters. My I have never read anything more hilarious! Teenage drama; all you had to worry about back then was how Reece found out I liked him, and if he was going to the Social (school dance). It has become quite clear to me now how I failed maths, each letter took place in maths class!

With each box I open I take a little walk down memory lane, some sweet, some sad and also sour. But it's nice all the same, I think memories are one of the most important things we posess.

It's a rainy old day, perfect for listening to records and nanna naps. A bit later I might raid mums red wine stash and put on some records. They have quite an impressive record collection wich I always eye off everytime I visit, wondering to myself would they ever miss that dark side of the moon. At the moment I am listening to Dr.Dogs - Fate and really enjoying it. It takes a couple of listens, but it definately has grown on me. I'm trying to put a finger on who he reminds me of, it keeps escaping me. So if your looking for something new, give them a whirl. Also an album on repeat at the moment is Vasco Era's - Lucille. So good. I had never really had a great understanding of a 'concept album' however this one really works for me. Music tells a story, but this album really takes you on a journey. 'Oh Sam' a easy favourite for me.

So, I have been thinking about this blog of mine and really want to go in a new direction, no more ramblings about nothing, I want to put more of a focus on Art and Music. I'm sure there will be alot of ramblings in here still but I want my main focus to be on my art. I have a terrible habit of saying these things and not following through, but hopefully putting this out there I will be more inclined to follow through.

This is not only applying to blog world either, I have been meaning to be more involved with art and photography in general, but it seems theres so much other stuff that just takes priority. And I have been desperately trying not to let it.

This is my plan, lets hope it will last. Now I need to stop blogging, twittering and facebooking; get out my visual diary and start doing!
