You might be an artist if.......

Celebrating one year with Paint Party Friday.
http://paintpartyfriday.blogspot.com/

 
(collage artist----Vela)
You might be an Artist IF....

you might not be the most organized person,

everything you see looks like a future painting,

all your money goes to art supplies,

you want to go to the beach.....just so you can paint

there are never enough daylight hours to accomplish your painting,

when you give a gift, it's artwork,

when you get a gift, it's artwork,

you might dress a little kooky,

you secretly give yourself haircuts (it's sculpting isn't it),

you aren't the best accountant but also never worry about money,

and remember the number one reason,

you know you are an Artist when...

you dream...often (even while awake!)
 numbers and letters float in you mind
and they're in color...
to be in future paintings, of course...

If you answered YES to any 5,
I think you qualify.

Savor the Day!
Yvonne

Does this count - today I am wearing a necklace that has a tiny artists' palette on it which reads 'I am an Artist'!!

Your painting is beautiful - I love all those jubilant colors and the texture is wonderful! I never call myself an artist, but if I go by your list, I must say I qualify. : ) Happy PPF.

Heehee....love your list! (I have been yearning to go to the beach as of late for the main purpose of painting! I'm a Texan too and grew up near the coast but now I live in Austin and miss being close to the water.)

Your collage painting is so fun and vibrant!!

fabulous post. Yes yes yes!!!

Gloria said...

Really beautiful work! I love the random splatters and the really raised rectangle upper right. i laughed when I saw the part about cutting your own hair! I also have done that for years, but never thought of it as sculpting!

JKW said...

Love the test, yep, 8 think that might fit me. I always cut my own hair, but then I also make cloth dolls. . . have to cut their hair too. Blessings, Janet PPF
