Looking back, I realize that before I began my journey into art, that I had little idea exactly what I was getting into. I thought of art as an “enjoyable pastime”, a therapeutic endeavor, a way to cover some vacant walls. Now, after several years of pursuing art in the mixed media world, I have come to see that creating art enters into every part of my life.
Hours of painting,cutting, folding, writing,clipping, and before the first few flowers were even blooming my hands were numb.
Did that stop me? A couple years ago, I came to the understanding that the artwork that I create is only a part of the whole creative process. The artistic process also includes, shopping for supplies, cleaning up my studio, time spent at the framers, online research and hours spent looking for the “right” supplies. And now I add Dr. visits and shopping for wrist supporters. i always knew that garden work could be dangerous but I somehow thought working in my art garden was a safer pastime.
