  1. It took me a while before I took the jump into Art Journaling; but--- what I found? I experienced such an OVERWHELMING sensation of "All these years!" It was both a feeling of great sadness, and a haunted happiness, that it took me all these years [after being distracted for decades], to get back to who I TRULY am.

  2. Discovering mixed media has allowed me to grow as an artist and let go of self-criticism. I have more confidence and joy in expressing myself through art.

  3. Art is important in every aspect of my daily life. Making and surrounding myself with creative items lifts my and others' heart.

  4. For me that is like asking why is breathing important to you? Because it keeps me alive, grounds me, keeps me sane, gives me life. Yep, I'd say, that's Art for me.

    ReplyDelete
  5. My mother always said 'art feeds the soul' and I've come to see the truth of that. We can feed our bodies, but creating and appreciating art nourishes us in a deeper way, and is what separates us from the beasts of the field.

  6. Art for me is a way of expressing what I otherwise could'nt. It is essential to my life and happiness.

  8. Art is, as we open our eyes in the morning, an entegril part of our being. It is in everything we see, everyone we meet. Creating art, an extension of our very core, our soul speaks and is not only seen, but heard by the right ears and eyes.

    ReplyDelete

  21. Art is just a part of who I am. If I don't have the time or take the time to do something creative daily I actually feel a loss. Even though at times it is frustrating when it keeps me awake. I feel incredibly blessed to love creating. Thank you for this opportunity

  22. Creating art is " that which makes my heart beat faster". It is a slow death to go too long without creating it. I put it off most of my life to raise kids and then grandkids, pay mortgages and bells etc. my time now. Heather Domke

Well deserved honor. ~Hobby

  72. Art saved my life. I was in a horrible motorcycle accident and couldn't work anymore. My work was of a professional dancer. It was a hard road but I turned to art as my creative outlet and to this day even though I'm in a wheelchair now I turn to my art to get me through the hard times.

  74. I have always had love for art and it's been part of my life at a very young age. My grandad was a self taught artist and crafter and I seemed to have picked this up :) I love it, I suffer from anxiety and panic attacks and it is the most effective and relaxing thing that seems to help at the moment :) and I love how my children feed off my art and become more creative every day :) I also just love to share with the world ;)

    ReplyDelete

  76. That question actually took be aback, I'm not sure how to answer it. Art is a part of my everyday life, and has been since early childhood,
    so . . . I dunno exactly how to answer "why."

    It just IS!

    It's a thinker . . .

    This magazine looks fabulous, congratulations to you, and thank you for the opportunity!

  77. I am a caregiver, as well as a mom if 4 (3 still at home) and grandmother of 2. Art is my recharge, so much so that my husband encourages me to pursue it. He sees how it benefits my soul. No matter what my mood, I can spend time in my art room expressing myself through my art.

  88. It makes me smile and feel. My eyes would be big if I saw some beautiful piece of art. I forget everything else

    ReplyDelete
  89. Every morning I go first to my emails and delete the trash, then onto FB. I fill my head and heart with the many beautiful canvases I find left there by the various artists I follow. Before I know it, it is 9am and I have to do my exercise routine before showering and having the dressings changed on my legs. I cannot do without my daily fix of colour. This is what sets me up for the day, and it is the thought of pencils, paints and paper that encourages me to work through my daily chores in order to be free after lunch to use them. A world without colour to me is unimaginable.xx

    ReplyDelete
  90. For me art is a release, a joy, a way to express. I find it very meditative. When I paint I lose myself in that moment. I don't worry about bills, or work or family challenges .. I just get lost in creating. This past year I have had great joy in painting rocks to look like ladybugs. My friends and I sell them and the proceeds go to our local cancer center in honor of her son which was taken by cancer. We also hand out the small ones to random people and it is amazing the joy that these little bugs give people. We see the joy and feel the joy in giving them. To date I have made hundreds of "cancer bugs" we call them cancer bugs - cause cancer bugs us. I am 49 mother of two, work full time and have learned to make time for art as it really does re-energizes me. Thank you for your art and the potential to win this gift.
