I have never been a very "arty" kind of person, but when I turned my dog training hobby into my full time job, I had to look for a new way of balancing my work/private life. When I spotted a basic art set with acrylic paints in a supermarket, I decided to buy that and give it a go. It didn't come easily to me as I am certainly not a natural with arts, but practice makes perfect, right?
So I am just having fun with drawing and painting as it helps me relax and clear my head. Seeing a picture develop from an idea in my head to a few brush strokes into something beautiful, fascinates and motivates me.
