Writers Who Paint, Painters Who Write

Funny how moving into an apartment makes you remember all the little things you don’t own, and have always borrowed.

…like pencil sharpeners.

I’ve been doing a lot of art lately, including a large acrylic painting for the wall of our apartment. I haven’t painted in a very long time, so it was a good exercise. Art is a good balance to writing, which I’ve also been doing a lot of. I’m beginning to submit to chapbook competitions– mustn’t let my poetry major die after graduation! And because writing requires so much critical thought, so much paying attention… Art is like therapy for a writer.
