me and art: i love you

I love my art. I love it for always being there when I need a room to ease my anger, confusion and sadness. I love it for quietly holding me from falling down because of my own stupidities. I love it for making me jump out of the bed in the morning and making me just can’t wait to go home to make some more.

I love my art. I love it for showing me how powerful yet shallow I can be because it’s all in my own hands at the end. My ten nail-bitten small fingers. I love it for telling me again and again that it’s never been about material possessions or money I have in my pocket. I love it how a scissor, a tube of glue and piles of scraps could make me feel so full of life. Or your pencil, eraser and paper do to you. Maybe.

I love my art because it comes from every single side of me, myself and I. Nothing more, nothing else. And I know you love your art too. Thank you for sharing it with me and let me sharing mine with you.

Do you know that I post this after reading your post on art and craft today? It's an email to a dear friend of mine actually.

Thank you for being so inspiring and making such an awesome craft works, Penny Nickels.

Thank you! That means so much to me! I was starting to worry that maybe I'd done a poor job explaining those ideas, your kind words mean so much to me!
Also- I've never seen works like yours before. They're absolutely unique and your use of color is amazing!

Ika!!! I love your art, too! And I love making things - I think if I couldn't I would go crazy. :) So here's to scissors, and glue, and fabric, and paint and all the yummy things we get to play with - and the great sense of self that we get when we finish a piece. :) Thank you for reminding me how important it is! xox Pam

it's such an ease to getaway with arts (especially drawing). sometimes i could be a procrastinator on behalf of drawing...hahhahaha.
