As long as I remember myself I was holding a piece of paper and a color marker or a pencil. Always wanted to be an artist and paint.
As a digital artist I tend to use brushes and paint as well. But what I love most is painting in my small studio . The smell of the paint..the mess I make while I paint.
The colors and movement I can create !
so when I am not at the computer I love painting! as much as I can!
Here is a Spark presentation with my paintings!
Nice work Chana.
I especially like the textures in this one. Did you use a textured medium under your oils?
I like to paint when I can carve out some time for it. I don't have what you could call a studio so I work outdoors on my patio when weather permits.
I used medium and let it dry than painted on it!!
Thank you! Love textures and colors
Quand je ne travaille pas, … je dors … en essayant de ne pas rêver que je suis au travail en train de travailler ! …
I have nothing that I do that I call work- all are passions.
Walking away from the computer after years as a designer, I am now back to being an artist and a naturalist.
So my time is working with Adobe apps, time being with nature and trying to grow green stuff to eat and share and rest, being aware of what is happening in the world, and centering myself as to what I am suppose to be doing.
Somedays it works and others not so much but the drive and determination to keep true keeps me focused!
How many males identified with John's 'wife's list of chores' comment? I don't get too many lists, but there's usually something that needs doing.
I'm retired, and choose to accept very few jobs nowadays, but when I am not sat in front of my computer practising whatever, I like to create in other ways. Before I retired I worked as a design engineer, and always had access to a workshop. So now I belong to a 'Menz Shed' where once again I have all the machine tools I need. I'm still setting up the engineering shop, but my plans are to make a gimbal tripod head, video accessories like sliders, and jib arm. A really solid camera support system as it irks me that so much tripod design is just plain wrong. And so much more.
but all this month I've been fixing web sites for people that didn't listen to my advice
well, it happens al the time , it was called genius and many people find it difficult to understand.

I probably spend almost as much time doing that as I do working.
Hiking and cycling in areas that are too remote for cell phone service—and reading when I am at home.
An image is better than a long speech.
It's 20 years old:
Hi Chana, where on Modern Family will we see your artwork this season?
I like to read when I am not on the computer.
Hiking - Biking - Reading - Working Out
Refining my bucket list
digging in the dirt- expanding my garden into the winter growth
seeking new aspirations for my creative work
thinking of all there is left to accomplish
After almost 40 years working in broadcast television, I've retired and now my hobbies are...
Video Editing and Sound Design. Gosh I'm boring!
(When not doing DVA stuff, my other creative release tends to be cooking--Seared Tuna Tatake tonight!)
