Reliving the art days

For the last three weekends, I have got back into something that I haven’t done for years. No, unfortunately it wasn’t anything to do with having a stress-free day, it was something that I used to do all of the time – art!

Throughout school my main field of education was art and design – which then poses the question why did I go into a career of legal and IT, that to me still remains a mystery even after nearly 15 years, but there was always an underlying fear that if I took up art full time then I would very quickly loath it. While I don’t loath my career, it is a different section of my life.

Sure enough, I was involved so much with drawing, painting and anything visually creative, that just over 3 years ago I had to give it a break. The skill was no longer enjoyable and after several successful exhibitions and charity events, I just lost interest and the very thought of picking up a pencil just made me feel tired and anxious, it was very hard to describe.

My partner and family have spent the last three years trying to peak my interest, and then three weekends ago I did it, I picked up a paintbrush and began to paint.

My best media was always oil paints and then I progressed on to digital painting. The following are some of my works that I was well known for:

So, this is one of the pieces that I have produced over the last couple of weeks. Not bad for a first draft in acrylics and for the first time in several years.
