Wow!!! Fantastic!!!! Do you understand just how wonderfull it is to be an artist??? I couldnt sleep tonight and was laying there thinking about this blog, so I got up and here it is. I just wanted to talk heart to heart how I feel about being an artist. So here goes---- I love it. I love the time spent painting. Even when things don't go the way I want it to. I go to my easle with a blank canvas, turn on the music and just go at it. Do you know that it is a special joy to behold? I thank my God for giving me this happiness all these years. I thrill when a painting is going my way and keep looking at it and thinking---"Did I create that?" It makes the time fly by so fast and never do I get enough time to paint. I wonder how you feel my artist friend. We have so much in common--Don't you think? I love to look at other artists work and admire them and all the work they go through to get where they are. I know I have worked hard all these years to get that one great painting and I am still at it. I know it can be a bummer when our efforts fail--but with each failure, we strive to do better. It makes us work harder each time. Even one of my dogs sits nearby and enjoys my work. this is Prissy, she is a nice friend. I also have a poodle--"Dilly". Would you believe that it is thundering and maybe I will not be able to finish this blog. So I guess I best go to bed. Just wanted to chat a few minutes. I sure would like some comments and tell me what you think---How about that??? Milliegiftsmith
