How Do You Do It?

The inspiration for my theme comes from watching my children. When the two of them draw and create, there are no insecurities, no rules and no judgments. They just pick up a crayon and have fun.

Between teachers, clients and responsibilities, my artistic road has been bumpy. I've spent too much time being practical about my art and too little time just doing it. I think I'm on the right path now — I'm back to creating art because it's something I have to do.

I suppose I'm wondering how other artists continue, in spite of having grown up. Think about it Kathleen — you're up next.

BTW everyone, don't feel like you have to stick with my theme. It means something to my neurotic self, but I don't want anyone stressing when they get my book. I'm just excited to have examples of your work that I can keep all for myself. ;-)
