Tomorrow Seth Apter over at The Altered Page is hosting his annual hunt for buried treasure – in your old posts.
I decided to take part. It was such fun looking back through the years (!) on my blog and trying to choose something I was proud of and that represented me.
I choose this one "What I Believe" from October 2011.
Here is the beginning of this post.
Michelle Ward hosts a monthly crusade at GPP. This past month was "I'm a Believer". I have taken part in a number of crusades in the past and felt this one shouldn't be missed.
Michelle listed a number of questions about life as an artist. She asked that we journal about our beliefs about art and being an artist.
Most of my life I never called myself an artist or felt that I was creative. I could copy very well. I have fond memories of drawing cartoon characters.
But then I discovered Haliburton School of Fine Arts and for 7 summers, I spent a week or two with my children there and we all took courses. I took courses in basketry, silk screening, design, collage, watercolour. It made me realize that I loved to create and needed to create. I continue to take courses as I can.
Please continue reading here to see how I answered her questions and what art I shared.
Thanks for visiting! Be sure to check out the wonderful buried treasures at Seth's "Altered Page"
