Passion or Pastime?

Matthew:  Mom, is your painting a passion or a pastime?
Me:  Well, I haven't really thought about it in that way, but I think it's somewhere in between.  I'm not very good, ya know.
Matthew:  Do you enjoy it?
Me: Yes, I love it!
Matthew:  Then you don't have to be good, you can just enjoy doing it.

Wise kid... he's so right.  Good or not, I totally love doing it.  It is such an escape for me -- for some reason I am in the moment; I can completely stay in the now when I'm painting.
And I've always loved colors.


I stack my paintings on the mantle.  I don't know what else to do with them.
For some reason I like to paint circles.  Lots and lots of circles.  I'm not sure what that means.
