painting pictures

i have a friend who tells great stories. he tells stories of his travels, he writes stories of places he's been and the amazing things that happen there, he even tells stories in music.

i am not that good at telling stories.

i am good at painting three dimensional pictures-- i set scenes, create atmosphere, create a sense of home or space or lightness in a room or building. i can make a room look and feel how we want it to feel. i can make it feel comfortable and balanced. i can make it beautiful.

i like to think that the two are not so far off-- there is a natural affinity for something, and then there is a process of learning how to do it better. i am gonna keep on learning...
