Especially since I’m not sure about what my art means to me.

Maggie – this is a lovely piece. Thanks for sharing 🙂 LikeLike Reply ↓ Maggie Wilson March 1, 2014 • 5:38 pm Thanks, RR. Glad you liked it. I wonder, you two, this discussion about visual art: perhaps were are more suited to performance art? As in the written word. I have art supplies from years and years ago. Yeah, I’ve got the technical chops, but don’t look to me for anything truly inspired.

A slow process indeed and it is bittersweet. TIME….

Though, I guess I fulfill the idea that we are never satisfied with what we have as I have always longed for better art/drawing skills. Like you, I do have the technical chops but I don’t seem to have a style. I was always the one who got “jack-of-all-trades” in leadership groups. Oh well. Guess I will be able to say, I’ve tried it all! LikeLike Reply ↓ Maggie Wilson March 2, 2014 • 7:43 am VERY interesting to hear that, RR. On reflection, I suppose that tells us we are good at observation, good at transferring the outside world to the page (Listen to me, talking about how “good” we are! SHEESH!) OK, how about, we are capable… yadda yadda… my inner critic is alive and well this morning!) Seriously, though, I do understand the hunger to be able to do it all. LikeLike Reply ↓ M. R. March 1, 2014 • 2:23 pm FASCINATING technique, Maggie! – does she always use it? I love it! LikeLike Reply ↓ Maggie Wilson March 1, 2014 • 2:45 pm Yes, as far as I know, she uses this technique exclusively. She goes through a boatload of pigment for each painting. LikeLike Reply ↓ M. R. March 1, 2014 • 2:49 pm I’m not surprised … but the end result is worth it! LikeLike Reply ↓ Your thoughts? Cancel reply Enter your comment here...
