Archived: The Power of Love by Jamie Marteney


I am 19, I am a first year student at Aims Community College. Until my senior year in high school I never really enjoyed or was good at painting. I always felt it was so cut and dry, like this is the way you paint and thats it; that everything had to be perfect. One day I picked up a brush dipped it in acrylic; instead of moving the brush, it was like the brush was moving me. After that I just realized it doesn’t have to be perfect, if you mess up it just becomes more a part or your piece.
