The Artist Within


This digital collage journal page was created with an original photo I took down on the docks. I then added a ledger page just because and the stamp is from I Brake for Stamps. I have been taking photo after photo of circle things and trying to incorporate them into my art work. I loved the color and texture of the paint on this one.

In several of the journal groups I belong to there has been much talk about being an artist, when you knew you were an artist, what is an artist. I felt like this pretty much summed it up for me. I think most of all you have to follow the rhythm of your heart. If you are true to that, then you will be successful and happy.

I too have been wondering at what point you call yourself an artist. I haven't come to an answer yet... I love your collage and maybe that's the answer. When you see the artist within you are an artist:0)

Love your collage - I think the quote to the right says it all about creativity and being an artist. Hey, maybe instead of 'twinchies' we should trade circles??

Janet originally the photo was of an industrial electrical box that the Coast Guard uses to hook up to when they are in port.
