I painted this portrait of Robert Browning when I was a teenager, no he didn't sit for the portrait !! HA HA I enjoyed painting but I have always preferred sketching or drawing more, for one thing it's easier to do anywhere. It's a lot easier to carry around a sketch pad and a few pencils than canvases, paints, and brushes. I suppose ultimately the reason writing appeals to me even more than sketching is because I like to think I can paint pictures in peoples minds with my words. I only need a small notepad and now I can even use a tiny netbook computer to create my style of "art".
