Searching For My Inner Artist – Friday Fictioneers

Good Wednesday afternoon! It’s a gorgeous, not too hot and sticky day here in the Montreal area. So sorry for those of you in the stinkin’ hot States right now. Sending out good vibes that this heat abates soon. Till then, how about a little silly Friday Fictioneer story, hosted by our illustrious leader, who also supplied her own photo, Rochelle. Better yet, how’s about you add your own little 100-word story to go with? Yeah? Click on the frog below and add your link. Easy-peasy!

Searching For My Inner Artist

What’s all this?

Searching for my inner artist. Figuring my father must have given me a smidgeon of his artistic genes.

You can’t even draw stickmen, why would you think you can paint?

Dunno. I feel this might be a medium I could play with. More abstract, yanno? Doesn’t have to be so precise and detailed.

That’s the case with all types of paints, by the way. And it’s not as easy as it looks.

I know I am no Rochelle, Monika or Louise, but can’t hurt to try?

Why not stick to photography? It IS an art form, too…

What is Normal? – Crimson’s Creative Challenge #25

Crispina’s CCC challenge is one that I enjoy as it is open to pretty much anything!  All she asks is that we not go past 150 words.  To see just what you can do, click here.

What is Normal?

“She doesn’t get out enough!”

“Has she no real friends?”

“She should try to be more sociable.”

“Must she always be drawing on her pad?”

“I really don’t think this is good for her.”

“This is not normal behaviour.”

Why can’t they just leave me alone?

They don’t understand that I am happy.

Who determines what is normal?

I have a terrific on-line community.

Not sociable! I participate in Comic-cons and expos. Seems to me that takes sociability.

I just wish they would stop judging me and accept me for who I am.

Jennifer’s thoughts disappeared as she sat by the pond, drawing in her ever-present pad, the latest of many she had accumulated since she was old enough to hold a pencil.  How lucky she was to have parents who encouraged her, allowing her to become a successful artist, earning a living doing what she loves.

This video is close to my heart as my niece created this as her graduating piece.  She dedicated it to both my late father and late husband, both who inspired and encouraged her.  This video also won her a trip to Switzerland!
