PictureMy Acrylic Fingerprinting on Canvas.
I wouldn't call myself a fine artist. I have only had one painting class and that was required for my Graphic Design degree. I prefer loose
carefree painting. I lean towards mixed media and abstract art. I admire the more detailed artists but when I paint that just isn't me.

I really started getting back into painting after work last year,watching tutorials. I fell in love with Cinnamon the Art Sherpa. She actually has fun when painting and you feel relaxed and not judged.
I  was terrified of my art instructor in college. He was rigid and I think I had been to funerals that were more lively than his classes.

I always loved art and I am pretty proficient at Digital art. Most of the art on my website http://www.angelahholmes.com are either mixed media or digital paintings. The one above is for sale as a print, or even a shirt or Greeting card

Creating this finger painting was the most fun I've had creating on canvas. I intend to make many more in this style.

So if you have a desire to create keep trying until you find your niche. Don't let stuffy art teachers or art critics deter you. Painting is therapy for many. As long as you feel good while painting and you are happy with the result that is enough.

Happy creating!

I agree. Art is supposed to be a way of letting go of you inhibitions. Art is anything you want it to be. Do not let others define you as an artist because this will be the reason of your struggles. It's good that you chose what your heart desires. Keep on posting more of your traditional artworks. I really like them!
