Artist,Homeschooling Mom of 2 girls.....Letting the art out through needles, thread and fabric on a daily basis. A personal challenge to create something every day for 365 days. Whether it be through fabric and thread, paint, pencil, ceramics, music, design or just plain enjoying the art and inspiration that is around us. Stopping to view the beauty not just smelling the roses but to take it ALL in and enjoy each day!
Inspiration Friday: Art & Books from my childhood
Growing up we had art books and were it seems surrounded by art in the home. I would sit and browse through these for hours. I doodled on everything and everywhere. I read almost constantly. I perhaps (as some said) lived in a fantasy world. In reality books and these artworks were my companions when things were tough.
You might find my choices of authors strange for a child. I have not one explanation just that I was fascinated by the stories and the writing and still today I search for novels just as well written comparing them subconsciously to these masters. I think I must have read and reread MacBeth dozens of times. Poe often gave me the shivers but I read them anyway over and over.
I still have all of my original books and when my oldest daughter wanted to take them into her room I happily passed them on glad to know that the tattered bindings were being loved once more.
