I have never been the person who thought of myself as an artist. My grandfather was an artist (the real kind) and by comparison, I paled.
So, I guess it was somewhat unexpected for me to stumble upon art. And to find myself smiling while I paint.
It was unexpected that I would venture out of my scrapbooking box and fall in love with a different form of art. Especially when I never looked at scrapbooking as "art" even though in so many ways, it really is.
I find it wonderful and exciting to discover a new passion...a new love...waiting for me underneath the layers of paint and gesso. It keeps my creativity fresh and stretches me to constantly learn and try to improve.
All it takes is one glance...enough to fall in love.
