Studio Friday -Looking Back

let's do exactly this and take a look at what you started out with on your creative endeavor and all those magnificent things you have accomplished since then.

I have always loved art but in my life it seemed I never time for it. I always did some sort of craft always searching for something that would hold that I would feel was right. I always sketched a little, mostly doodling but nothing serious. Then a life altering occurance happened, my sister died suddenly and I had a major meltdown. My therapist suggested I take up some kind of hobby so i thought about it and decided to go back to my art. Of course, I did not show it to anyone, nobody knew except my family what I did. Then I decided to create a blog and felt comfortable showing my art on my blog after all nobody knew who I was. The more I did the better I felt and the better the art became. I used to secretly call myself an artist. But now I am saying it out loud I AM An ARTIST. Looking back I have come a long way....
