Finding the right words
If you asked me, I would have to say I am not that good with words. Spoken. Written. Doesn't matter. It is surprising to me at times since I'm a rather sensitive and emotional person. I would think I should be able to express myself through words better. But I don't. In fact sometimes it's downright uncomfortable for me to find the right words. If I take a look at my family though it makes sense. I believe I've said this here before, but we're more of an express-ourselves-through-action kind of family.
So it's interesting to me, as I make art, that words almost always find their way into my pieces, whether it be the simplicity of a word in my Word Art or a quote with an image. I do love inspirational words and quotes. Both are simple ways for me to express what I am feeling.
Blogging has also been a great exercise for me, too. Having just completed Kelly Rae Robert's Flying Lessons, I've been inspired by many fellow flyers and their blogs. There are a lot of wonderful writers out there. I'm really drawn to the conversational-type writing. It feels really comfortable and inviting.
So as I continue making art and blogging, it should be interesting to see my voice develop.
