Encouragement

Sometimes it seems that all I do in this world is fight for a right to take my place, or find a place to fit in…it just doesn’t seem to come natural to me, this art of fitting into the world.

 

And maybe that is what an artist is supposed to do…skew the fit, change the landscape, view the architecture of life differently!  Maybe the “not fitting in” is part of the life an artist lives.  The pain and the discomfort of always questioning yourself –is the creation of ‘the artist’…and when the questioning is over so then is the art.

 

I don’t know, but if the artist in me requires there to be discomfort then I say BRING IT ON!  I am defining myself.  It may have taken half a century to do it, but I am taking a stand!  Today I define me, I say I AM an artist!  As I live and breath it shall be the me I put forth into this world and it will be the defining mark I leave behind.

Art has always been a part of my life, ever since I can remember I have been creating art. I would make gifts to share with others at Christmas and then I found drawing, or maybe God introduced me to that particular art form, but it was an all consuming thing during my youth. After I had kids, it seemed that art didn't fit into my world in the same way. But the desire was always there and it eventually took over my life again...becoming a need more than a desire. So, photography enters my life. Artists have a unique way of seeing the world, it is their vision that creates the art not the medium they choose to express it in. No two artists will see the same thing in the exact same way. It is the most beautiful form of flattery to have someone see your art and tell you it is beautiful to them. It connects you on such an intimate level. I want to share my creative vision with everyone that wants to look upon it with appreciation.
