A is for Artistic
I have hopped on the A to Z Challenge bandwagon again and I hope to get farther than I did in the past. For me this will be a wonderful exercise in daily blogging (and challenging my imagination!!)
A is for Artistic. I enjoy having an artistic side to mix along with my analytical side. I have found over the years that I drift from one artistic theme into another and into another... I am not really a very monogamous art person! I plan to write about several of my artistic ventures over the following month and will share with you several types of artistic activities I enjoy or have enjoyed in the past. Currently I enjoy spending my spare time doing knitting, crochet, dyeing, and painting (both acrylic and watercolors). You will get to see some examples of each of these along the way! What I really need is a dedicated art/craft space so that I can really keep involved. Right now I have things spread all over the house!! In the kitchen, dining room, living room, spare room/office, attic... I think the only places clear of my artistic stuff are the bathroom and bedroom!
So what is it that makes me artistic?? I really don't know. I think it is mostly a way for me to express ideas and passions that are lurking. Some of what I create is not very good (in my opinion) and some of it is wonderful (again in my opinion!). Whatever the case may be, it is something that I dearly love doing with my spare time and something that gives me pleasure. And that is enough for me :)
