Tracy challenged us at Mixed media Mondays to embrace ourselves as artists. I think I laughed out loud. Pretty sure no one thinks of me as an artist - most of all myself. Then I actually starting looking up the definition and searching articles for "Who is an Artist". Low and behold, in some strange way, I am an artist.
An artist can be defined as a person who produces paintings or drawings as a profession or hobby. If that is the case, then I can be called an Artist. I create something that has not existed before. Each time is new, different. And while it may never hang in the louvre, it has given me joy and pleasure, I need to accept the act that each of these creations is art and I am indeed an Artist!
