I can write. I can sew. I have talents I am proud of. 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. Drawing has never been one of my talents and likely never will be. I knew that going in, but I still signed up for an art class. Below you will find my first composition. Believe me, I have seen better work from 5th grade students. 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.
