I can write. Â I can sew. Â I have talents I am proud of. Â Drawing isn’t one of them.
This I am proud of:
I made this piece of fabric art. It is 33″ square. The base is 1/8th” particle board. I padded and upholstered the board, and used a curtain tie back to adorn it. I designed the piece to “pull-together” various elements of my living room decor. It hangs above our fireplace.
Those that know me know my first and most favorite art is that of word weaving. Â Drawing has never been one of my talents and likely never will be. Â I knew that going in, but I still signed up for an art class. Â Below you will find my first composition. Â Believe me, I have seen better work from 5th grade students. Â If you know me, when you see what it is I’ve depicted, you’ll understand my “self-portrait”:
Even in drawing, I cling to the comfort of words — the art I know and understand.
