Artsy Fartsy Day


Today is my Artsy Fartsy Day where I get my hands dirty with Acrylic paints and teeny weeny brushes!

I am suppose to be studying, really... I did for (I think) 3 hours!



I am planning to do some Super Mario 8bit painting on 4"X4" canvas. It is really not that hard, it just takes one to WANT to try something different that is artsy.



Painting was never my kinda thing but what got me buying Acrylic paint was more for nail art. If you scroll down, you'd see how I got myself started with painting these.

What else should I think of doing in life while I'm young and motivated? How do you like my painting? LoLz!
