February 20: Thoughts for the Day (Part 2)

I think there’s a visual artist locked somewhere inside of me.  Not necessarily a creative genius, but a competent technician; someone who, with the proper training in technique, could produce art that’s not half-bad. My occasional dabbles into art…pencil sketches, acrylic on canvas, and so on…are satisfying, but would be much more so if I were better, technically. at the process of creating it. “Take a course in acrylic painting” has been on my to-do list for a long time; now, though, I think something more fundamental might be more appropriate, though I don’t know precisely what is more fundamental than a basic painting class.  Maybe a “sketching” class.  Well, I’m not doing anything about it today, other than reminding myself about it; but I’ll highlight in on my to-do list for the near-term.
