I'm an artist!!
Last night I was called an artist. I was called this in reference to the work I've done on Butchy's page and on the page I'm doing now for my new friend Tony. It crax'd me up.....only cuz I've never been able to draw a straight line to my satisfaction! But, thanks to the wonder that is computer graphics, etc...I'm now an artist. What is so cool about this is that I come from a family of artists. The kind that can actually draw, paint, etc. My Uncle was so good he actually sold lots of his paintings. My little brother is an amazing artist...his artwork brought big bucks to a very worthy cause in an auction. My Mom is an artist, as well. My Dad and I were not blessed with being able to draw anything recognizable. Sure, if folks wanted abstract to the nth degree....we'd be able to fill their order. My Dad would anyway....I'm too anal. If it doesn't look like I want it to look.....to the trash it goes.
My brother's masterpiece
He created this in honor of a school friend of his that died
due to a brain aneurysm during a High School football game
The auction was held to pay for Chad's medical & funeral expenses
One of my Uncle's works
My Mom's prizewinning creation
She designed this from scratch, no patterns whatsoever
She won 1st place at the county fair
