My Outlet...

Growing up I always assumed my talents/gifts were sports related. I was a competitive gymnast and cheerleader for 10 years, they consumed the majority of my life. I never really tried to do other things because I was good at sports. Little did I know that years later I would find my true love. Art. I love art, all kinds. I can stare at a painting or photograph all day long. It has become my outlet. When I am frustrated, happy, fearful or sad you can see it on my canvas. I never plan what I am going to create. My mom always asks me , "Brooke are you sure you don't want to look at magazines or write down your ideas?" It doesn't work for me like that. I guess I like to do it organicly. All I have to do is look at the blank canvas and it literally shows me what to paint. Sounds crazy I KNOW! But it works. In the last couple months I have created alot. I don't want to post them all at once because I think they deserve their own monent in the spotlight.

This one I made for a friend who loves Batman. I immediatley knew I wanted it to feel raw so I didn't think, I just painted. I loved how it turned out.

Jake & Stacey

Well I finally decided it was time to post a new blog! Christmas came and went, we did all of the normal things you do. Now its back to a normal life.
The past 6 days have been really fun. My friend Jake came up to Rocklin to visit Bobby and I he also brought my sister Stacey. We stayed up late, watched movies, went to the park, told riddles, played board games, laughed at youtube videos, introduced them to "married" life arguments, taught the "real" way to grocery shop, went to San Francisco, ate at Joe's Crab Shack, Olive Garden, PF Changs, Bubba Gumps and the Food court in the mall! Ha!
