Everyone has at least one specialty. Someone is good at music, the other is good at sport. Everyone has the different specialty. Among this group of people, some of them will merge their specialty into their life like musicians, artists, engineers, interior designers, etc. For me, I think I'm good at painting. When I was 6 years old, my mom was always paint with me. Painting can led me relax, and expressing my mood on paper. After I finished my works, my teachers, friends said, " Your painting is so amazing! " so I love painting and that's my specialty.
My parent's viewpoint is very free; they let us choose our majors and what we want to learn. For me, painting is my major. When I was a child, my mom was always painting with me, I really love this time, because my mom will never say, You must draw a flowers, a dog, etc. Sometimes I will ask her about my painting, "What should I do next? " and she replied, "If I tell you the next step, that will be my painting, you have to create your own world on your papers." This sentence affected me very deeply.
Henry Ward Beecher said, “Every artist dips his brush in his own soul, and paints his own nature into his pictures.” That's exactly truth. Artists paintings always express their mood in their works; I also express my feeling into my painting. For me painting is the easiest way to relax. I can use a lot of colors to explain anger, happiness, sadness, surprise, or anything in my life. The other reason I love painting is I don't need to limit myself. I can freely sway pigment on paper. I don't need to care about others opinion or their scolding. That's the secret space for me.
How do I know I'm good at painting? Actually, I'm not sure whether my painting skill is perfect or not, but I promise I use my whole energy when I paint. Sometimes I will use all day to draw a small painting. My friend always said, "No pain no gain." so my all-day painting's work is always better than the other works. When I share my painting with my mom and my friends, they always said, "You really did a great job,” so amazing"...etc. Therefore I think I'm good at painting.
In conclusion, Vincent van Gogh said, "Paintings have a life of their own that derives from the painter's soul." Art is freedom; I can express my mood on the painting. My mom said, " You have to create your own world on your papers." So now painting is my life; the brush is my soul; I create my world on paper. Like Pablo Picasso said, "Painting is just another way of keeping a diary" I’m good at expressing my mood on painting, I record my life by painting.
