Bad results

Do you love to dance, sing, write, sculpt, paint, or debate? What’s your favorite way to express yourself, creatively?

I Like painting miniatures using watercolours, but My results are pretty bad, as you can see by the shameless magnified picture shown above. I like to play with vivid colours but I don’t think I’m too creative in my painting. It’s just a pastime that helps me forget my problems while I’m busy with my brushes. I usually use my masterpieces as postcards or as greeting cards so I don’t keep them. My friends are very good and polite. All said they liked my cards. Maybe they didn’t know they were encouraging me to keep painting.
Music helps me express myself. I sang in a chamber choir for a while. It was a wonderful experience. I also played the piano.
My creativity flows mostly through writing. Maybe my readers will be surprised by this statement. Because my posts are so short and simple. It wouldn’t a surprise for them to know that English is not my first Language. Actually is my fourth. My creative writing has been made mostly in Spanish except for a single poem in Croatian. And that’s all.
