40 X 40 - #22 Paint a picture and hang it in my home.

I haven't defined any of my 40 X 40 goals in awhile. So, I read through the list again. One, to see if there was something I could tackle today/this week/this month. And two, to see what I could write a post about.

I know that God gives me talents. I can sing. I have a great memory. I can parallel park. And I give great hugs. But I have always wanted to draw or paint.

So, one of my 40 X 40 goals is to paint a picture and hang it in my home. I'm not sure what kind of painting I'll do. Maybe oils, maybe watercolor, maybe acrylic. (Like I know what any of that REALLY means!) I should really get some instruction from my cousin, Cassie. SHE'S AN AMAZING ARTIST!

But one thing is for sure. My painting won't be of a 'thing', because I can't draw a 'thing'. You wouldn't recognize it if I tried anyway. So, it'll have to be an abstract painting.

I could actually do this one now, I suppose. Decide on the colors, buy the supplies, and cover everything in the room with a drop-cloth before beginning. But I'd like to wait until I've redecorated my living room, since that's where I'd like to hang the picture... unless of course it's really ugly. Then it'll be hanging in the bathroom linen closet.

OMG, that's terrific - GO FOR IT! I'd love to have artistic talent, too...I think it's great you're going to make that a goal.

Can't wait to see the end result!
