Started painting pottery for Christmas presents, since they're affordable and come to find out, fun. Now, due to a recommendation from a friend, I have my own sketch pad, some pencils, and colored pencils. I'm good with none of them, but I find solace and joy at the same time. They don't have to listen, nor understand, and sure as hell don't talk back. I find solace and joy both when I draw. The challenge of it all spurs me on to see art in other mediums. My math, english, and diesel classes all have some form of art. I help my buddy build kerf cabinets. Art is everywhere, it's just how you view it. And art is changing my views.
