New Painting!

Well…I DID start this as an art blog, so I guess it would be appropriate for me to..you know, post art. xD SO, here it is!

This was my first attempt with oil paints…I kind of hate them a little bit because I’m so used to acrylics. xD But, I’ve seen some really amazing oil paintings, so I think I’d like to keep trying with a few more small-scale paintings. This one is only 5″x7″..=)

In other news, I’ve been reading a book called Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance. It was recommended to me by a very smart and sexy friend, so I decided I should give it a try. =D  It’s very philosophical…a bit hard to get through as far as it being a “fiction” work, but still interesting so far!

“From all this awareness we must select, and what we select and call consciousness is never the same as the awareness because the process of selection mutates it. We take a handful of sand from the endless landscape of awareness around us and call that handful of sand the world.”
