Painting, Take 1

I'm not a painter. I'm keenly aware of my lack of talent, especially since I know so many painters with actual talent. But art's a funny thing. There's skill, craft, technique. They take time to develop. And then there's just raw talent: some people have it, some don't. But everyone can create.

I hear people say "I'm just not a creative person" all the time.

Scientifically, that's not true. Humans are the only species who create things just for beauty, aesthetics, joy.  

If you're human, you were born to create something.    

But I was stuck on one thing:  "I'm not a painter."  Then I realized I owned brushes and paint.

So I gave it a try.

Here's the pattern I wanted on some leggings. (I'm sure MOMA will be calling soon...)

After hours of messing with the layout, I finally came up with these. 

Ordered some this morning -- can't wait to try them on!

p.s. You can order them too!  Click on either photo above.
