began with a little collage & blue paint...
a little more collage & added paint, and there you have it.
I thought i might have something extraordinary to share on this last day (sigh...) of AEDM, but alas, it wasn't meant to be. :-) I plan on continuing to follow most of you anyway, so it's all good and hopefully, some of you will visit now & then as well...
When i first began to blog, it was to become more comfortable with showing & sharing my art. I've never been a "hey!! Look what i can do!!" kinda gal. So it wasn't always comfortable for me to share my work. Blogging not only got me more comfortable, but it also gave me some wonderful connections with other like-minded creative souls out there. I'm so grateful for this.
The feedback we get by blogging is invaluable & I'm slowly realizing that we all need the occasional pat on the back. Regardless of how old (or young) you are, it's still good to get that gold star on the top of your page, isn't it? There's something to be said about creating something that makes others smile, or touches them somehow. Or even something that makes us smile.
Whenever i start questioning "why" i make art, i quickly find the answer. Because it makes me happy. Period. It's no more complicated than that. I'm not one of these tortured artists' whose soul is unsettled & stormy. Well, ok, my soul may be stormy at times, but ART is what helps me pull through. Always. Art & music.
I wish you all inspired, creative journeys.
