Lately I've been into painting just for fun. Even though my art focus is photography, I use the art of painting in a lot of my mixed media pieces.
There's something really calming and relaxing about painting. You definitelyyyyyy enter "Flow State". If you're into psychology, read about it here:Flow.
A fun way to try painting if you're a beginner is throughGroupon. No matter what city you're in, you can find a ton of two hour BYOB classes that are usually cool. Also, if you're in the mood to practice at home, Michael'shas a good deal on canvases right now .....20 (16x20's) for $40.00 :)
Below are some of the paintings I worked on this week with my friends. Also, we checked out a studio called Tipsy Paintin Glenview, IL. LOVED it there!!
