String Painting

 

 

Hey there, glad to have you back, I am Timothy Kimo Brien Head Instigator at KDOI Podcasting where we create more than we consume. This season we are doing projects that are inexpensive and are relatively easy to accomplish. You don’t need to be Davinci or Monet, heck you don’t even need to know who those old dead guys are, I just want you to have some fun, be inspired to make some art and share your experience with the project.

Now how did I come by this project, pretty easily. So if you remember way back in Season 1 episode 1 I explained why I was doing this project, don’t worry I will wait for you to catch up. No seriously I started this whole podcast because I assist Soldiers transitioning from the military to a civilian career. Many times we use art therapy to assist soldiers for whatever they need the therapy. Many times the Soldiers came to me and showed their work then denigrated it because they had no formal training. So I decided to show everyone that you have a creative spirit in you, we just need to unlock it. I want to give you ideas and encouragement and I would like to see what you are currently doing and I would love to have you on the show for an interview or a conversation.

A Gift of Self / Oil Painting


 

Welcome back to KDOI Podcasting, Season 2 Ep 5 Oil Painting project. This is probably the most personalized project you will do in this season. It is is the most difficult because you have to wait for the paint to dry between steps.

Lets start with the story and then we will get into the project. I am a self taught painter, I have only taken elementary painting classes and recently I took a “class” about 1.5 years ago where the teacher was around providing paint, brushed and tools to paint. We had to provide the inspiration and the canvas. I decided this would be a great opportunity to give a gift to my wife for Xmas so I took a picture of our trip to Paris where we kissed in front of the I Love You Wall and I dove into the class. It took 3 sessions of 2 hours each and walla, I had the best Xmas present ever, an attempt to recreate that  moment in time.
