The prompt for this month’s segment of the challenge is ART.
Well, art. I like it and all- even appreciate it enough to have it on my walls and shelves, visit museums, read and watch shows about artist. Yep, totally love the stuff especially Impressionist Paintings.
But, am I an artist? Nope. I am the last gal picked for a Pictionary partner if you catch my drift. My artistic work leans more towards words than visuals. One of my big bucket list dreams is to someday have a novel published that has one of my talented family members doing the cover art for me.
See, I do have artistic blood running in my veins and it goes back at least two generations even if I didn’t get any of it. I am the child and grandchild of talented painters. My grandmother won many competitions and sold her art as has my dad to a lesser extent. That is, he has her talent, just watered down- or so he says. My brother, actually has this generation’s talent, but he can’t afford to quit his day job and his bent is drawing rather than painting. You should have seen the margins of his notebooks and textbooks back in school days. LOL
So, for this month’s prompt, I’m sharing a few pieces of my dad’s art that he would not be happy I’m sharing b/c he does not toot his own horn. But, as he does not get on the computer at all, he’ll never know….
