Everyone has a select skill set. Some are wired to be organized, others are inherently messy… of course there are
plenty of skills and talents you can work towards – and with practice you may even master. But what if you could simply
skip all that and just DO something, and do it well. Yes, I am asking you to MAKE A WISH. What talent would you wish for?
I have had the opportunity to pursue a lot of different art – talent or no talent I tend to just jump in to things. I’ve shown in art galleries, sold commission pieces, painted giant murals in homes and businesses, worked as an apprentice under a sculptor artist (which meant welding giant sheets of metal together with huge industrial welding equipment and doing all sorts of sanding, buffing and painting), I have planned, set up, and held several art shows with other artists.
I am creative and have also taught art for several years now… and I say all that to back up this wish.
Realism. I really wish I could paint like my sister, like a few of my uber talented students even.
Recently there was a “documentary” of sorts made about my ridiculously talented sister – she is keeping it private though or I would share it here.
It is about her and the donors who stepped up to help fund her expensive private college experience – since my parents have been out of work throughout her high school, and now college years. Thanks to her talent, she was noticed, and has been able to work towards her double major – fine art and psychology – art therapy is a definite back-up, but everyone is telling her to keep going with art, it is just that good.
Now of course there are other talents I would love to just drop in my lap – but artistically speaking, for this blog - realism is definitely on the top of my list.
Your turn, Make a Wish!
