Affirmation Day 8

Last year I discovered a love for craft.  I found I had a good eye for colour and a creative mind.  Big surprise believe me.  I never though was an artist as such.  Until this year I could not even draw stick people.  During my lengthy stay in hospital I found I had developed an artistic talent.  Now this is debatable of course.  Everyone has different taste in art.  But I like it and that is all that matters.

My journey with art has just started.  I am very excited by art.  It helps me with my emotions.  I being a 12 week art course this Monday which I just can't wait for. Whether you like art or not I think it is possible to appreciate imagination and now I will also be learning technique.
