for the love of art.

i feel a painting coming on. meaning, i feel the need to create. meaning i'm lacking artistic time of my own and i need to get some soon. and need is the operative word here. when you are an artist or artistic i truly believe that you need to create. for some...it's your outlet, your vice, your high of sorts, your meditation and your pure joy.

next 2 images via house to home.

next 2 images via living etc.

image via loft life magazine.

next 2 images via metropolitan home.

image via marie claire maison.

image via owi.

image via purple area.

image via skona hem.

so a goal for me in the next couple of weeks is to paint. i started a portrait of my son a while back and i'd like to finish it sooner than soon. for all of the reasons listed above.
do you hang art? if so do you hang it in a more traditional way, or in a super eclectic and clumsy chic way? do you paint? sculpt? sometimes i see being creative as a gift and sometimes a curse, cursed by time which leads to frustration sometimes. but i'll still take the gift of it for sure! enjoy your monday everyone and hey, get busy being creative :)

i paint with oil and acrylic. I also sketch with charcoal. I have been feeling the need to paint lately too!
I actually pulled out my paints from the basement with a large canvas! now i just need to do it!

gorgeous post! i'd love to sit down and paint my heart out...the only problem is, i'm not very artistic in that way! my husband is an incredible artist - he can whip up anything from a portrait to an abstract masterpiece - he even sculpts...not fair :( ha ha! good luck with your sons portrait. i'd love to see it when you're all finished!
