So what do my pathetic personal woes have to do with this post, you ask?
Well, after the rather 'dry' activities of the weekend I decided to burn off steam by indulging in some creative art. Yes, I'm that weirdo who defines "burning off steam" as toying around with Photoshop, creating elevations of rooms that I would love to lounge around in. (Thanks to Room & Board/Anthropologie for allowing me to play with their furniture...oh and Ansel Adams, thanks to you too!)

Also after this weekend, I decided I would take up painting. I've attempted a few paintings here and there but have never made it past that "awkward phase' where everything looks blocky and flat. This time, I am fully committed to stick it out, even if it ends up looking totally sad. At least I can say I tried, right?
The picture below is Stage 1 of my endeavors... (still in that 'awkward, blocky' phase.)
A photo I snapped outside Glacier National Park, MT - (if you haven't been, you need to go because this place is stunning.) Also the subject matter of my 'special' painting.
I'll keep you updated as I go. Wish me luck!
Until next time...
