Have you tried watercolors?

No, I haven't. They seem like they would require creativity and originality and other "-ty" things that I haven't got!

Also, watercolor has always looked ... hmm, I don't know exactly how to describe what I'm thinking. Let me come at it the other way. Oil and acrylic are very "bold", "defined", "finite", "foreground". Watercolors make me think "delicate", "soft", "infinite", "background". Does that make any sense at all?

And you of all people know I'm not a "delicate", "background" anything! So I don't think I could wrap my brain around watercolors since I don't tend to picture things that way. I'll just enjoy other people's work (and hang it in my "delicate", "soft" bedroom - who woulda thunk it).
