When you have a dream, you need to Go For It! Don't make excuses, or settle for mediocrity in your life. What harm is there in persuing your dream? That is just what I am doing. I have always loved art...drawing with crayons, colored pencils, watercolor, acrylic, pen, charcoal, oil...you name it. I used to draw posters, make designs out of clay, silly putty (LOL) and paper mache. Then I STOPPED! Cold.
Now after many years, I am back into it. I noticed the yearning for creative art started when I began to take long walks. I began to notice nature like I had not done for years. I fell in love with the night sky...the moon, the stars, the planets. I also loved the serenity of water, budding flowers, sunsets and sunrise. Colors have always fascinated me, as well as eclectic arrangements. Leaves, petals, tree trunks, stems present very interesting opportunities to create. Pop art, and even some graffiti caught my attention.
As a young child I engaged myself in drawing lots of letters...some looked like fat balloons and the others looked like Times New Roman fonts. I would draw new designs for hours.
What a pleasure it is now for me to take some time out of my busy day to recapture what I loved so dearly. Practice makes perfect.
So, my word to you is 'follow your dream'...don't give up...just do it!:)
Until next time - Y.'Vette.
