Some of you might remember that when I started this blog, I said that I had a new hobby every year.
Only writing remains constant throughout my life’s journey, since it’s more than a hobby, it’s a passion, well, it hasn’t always been constant but it always came back – I always came back to it.
French fanfiction in 2008, vidding in 2010, makeup and blogging in 2011, novelist-huge-breakthrough-plans in 2012… For some I… well I didn’t give up but I kind of was out of time to do all so I had to eliminate, while for others, like blogging especially, remained and will remain in my life I believe.
And in 2013…
Of course, everything I stated above is art, but what I mean is that this year I’m embracing the very basic stereotype form of art, which is the visual one, painting and drawing. The one art I drowned in when I could not even read and write, which made me use up all the paint pots and try out all the cheap painting brushes we had in our family’s shop, and which made me wonder about beautiful sunsets painted on canvas…
Before I go any further, I’d like to say that my big plans for novel writing haven’t died; I’m in fact keeping them for later, since I realised that this year, I will have to concentrate on my studies a lot, and leave the rest behind temporarily, or at least do small little projects, so that I just don’t stop writing, like writing here, and especially every Friday when I attack Picture it & Write, a writing challenge hosted by Ermilia 🙂 Really helps me to keep my imagination for writing steady and in good shape! (Especially that I’ll enroll in a Creative Writing course at university!)
And same for art: doing little drawings, little paintings every week or so, or when I feel like it. Of course, at the same time, I have to do the art course’s project, which I’ll have to submit later to my teacher…
Anyway, when I saw this week’s photo challenge, Change, I admit I was a little discouraged. So many things changed in my life and everywhere around me changes never do stop, always evolving… but, it’s hard to describe it in a photo. So I just decided to make a multi-media post about it.
And Art is really, has always been and will still be changing my life.
And today, it made me go back to video editing, since I suddenly wanted to try something new:
Yes! Time lapse videos! a.k.a speed drawings/paintings. So this is my very first dare at this video art trend; I did only a little quick sketch just to have an idea of the whole overall process of such particular editing, but I will be doing more complicated drawings, especially portraits later 🙂 It’ll take time, but it’s worth a try!
An Evil Nymph needs your support! If you enjoy it and want more, just tell me, and if it’s the contrary tell me as well, so that I’ll know if I’m going to waste my time or not.
Anyway, video editing and art together? That’s so fun! Yeah!
Yes art is totally messing with my life! Distorting it, burning it, expanding it…
Art is changing my life, indeed; it makes me smile; it makes me dream.
It helps me to find myself a little more through every brush stroke, every typed word.
