My Art is About....

On my friend kathy cartwright's blog ( we had a discussion about finishing the sentence My Art is About..... I began to think about this and how to explain what my art is about. Not an easy thing to verbalize. So as i let that thought simmer for a while i came up with the following:

My art is more than "just" art.

It's a way of life
It's an expression of myself
It's an extension of myself
It's a daily prayer
It's a meditation
It's a look into my soul
It's my soul speaking, singing and drawing
It's a deep breath
It's inhaliing life
It's gratitude
It's a gift
It's more than "just" art.
It's hard work
It's a best friend
It's sometimes a foe.

So for now this is the only way i can verbalize what my art is. The rest will have to speak for itself on the canvas.


  1. This is one of the best descriptions I've seen of why one makes art. Would a gallery owner or customer understand? Kathy asks tough questions.

  2. Greetings Carolyn,

    I noticed the last two, my best friend and sometimes foe, is very true.

    Wishing you a wonderful week,

  3. I think you verbalized what your art is about beautifully!!!
