Painting as a Hobby
Whenever I decide to paint I end up taking photos… I think it’s my lack of confidence – the end result turns out not as I imagined it and I conclude that painting is not for me (I’ve done it so many times, it’s really strange I haven’t given up completely yet…).
Don’t get me wrong, it’s just a hobby, so it’s all about spending time the way I want to, but I’d love to be happy with what I have painted a little bit more often.

You won’t see the end result, but here’s some photos (what else did you expect?).
I love colours! Sometimes I’m so engrossed in the process that I don’t wash the brush (there’s no time for that) and cover it in layers of paint…
My tools – palette knives are as important (if not more…) as paint brushes. Painting is a serious hobby of mine!
Here’s just a corner of the latest painting (masterpiece, no doubt…) – a domestic scene, which might inspire a completely new collection…

Just a wise thought:
“A hobby is labor disguising itself as leisure. It is extremely destructive to the boundaries of private life.”
