Above all else I am an artist. I have been doing art all my life but it has taken until now to say and to believe that I am an artist. And I am really proud that I at 52 can say that this is who I am.
Do I say this because I sell my art or that I have had a show or that I have been in a gallery? No I say this because this is who I am and if I never sell another piece of art again it will not change who I am or my belief in my god given ability to create.
For Fun Monday I added a picture I made about my mother. I feel nostagic about my mom. She has passes over 20 years ago. But mom is always mom and I still miss her. I also added a second digital image I made of mom. I guess this piece was inspired by my mom's struggle with her mental illnesses she had late in life.
