As the bird clutches the branch
Although I have an undergraduate art degree, it has been many (many) years since I have done my own art and I am pretty shy about putting my stuff out there.
Last summer I had a wonderful opportunity to teach young children in an art experience class. Since then, I have been getting closer and closer to doing my own work, but I had fear! I didn't want to face the skills I lost or forgot about and all the wasted time. Finally, I had a bit of a breakthrough when I discovered Gary's videos on youtube!
I was inspired right away by his terrific art and generous, fun spirit! Lately, I have done some kind of art making everyday. That feels really liberating! So, I'm looking forward to what comes next; doing more, thinking less and doing art from the heart!
My best wishes to you all, Darrelle Anne
P.S. Little Green Squirrel is the name of my etsy shop and I've been using that name on other sites to promote my business. It seems kinda weird here, but too late! If you're curious about the squirrel thing, you can read about it on my bio in my etsy profile...or ask!
A Question by Robert Frost
A voice said, Look me in the stars
And tell me truly, men of earth,
If all the soul-and-body scars
Were not too much to pay for birth.
