When I was a kid, I used to fill the margins of my text books with doodles. This really irritated the hell out of my teachers. I hadn’t taken an art class since 5th or 6th grade, but I did occasionally use the rarely-practiced skill for something as I adulted, like a Christmas card.
In 2017, I was hunting around for a resolution, and spotted some oil paints and a canvas in a local craft store. These are some of the more acceptable results of my amateur efforts to learn to put paint on square-ish things.
