    Is it a hobby for you or are you taking classes? Do you ever feel like you might have been a painter in a past life?

    I'm an artist as well. Though I like the texture of oil paint I've never dabbled much into oil painting since I know it takes a long time for oil paintings to dry. However, my uncle has done oil painting before and my aunt would do paint by number with oil paints when she was a teen.

    I draw. I've not tried oil painting but I have used acrylic and watercolor.

    Not any more.
    There was a time when I tried drawing. Drawing with pencil on paper and digital drawing and painting as well. While an art teacher told me that I have no talent when I was a kid, I found out that even I can learn and make progress. Seeing my personal progress made me happy. Even though I wasn't really good at drawing or painting.
    But somehow I feel that I am done with this for now. I still can see the world through the eyes of an artist, you know what I mean, when everything is just a play of light and shadows so that even a trashcan or an ashtray suddenly becomes beautiful to behold... yet still, I am done. I do not feel frustrated anymore that I cannot draw or paint like a master and never will. I still can appreciate art. And music. And literature.
