Another day, another post for Blaugust, this week is supposed to be about getting to know me. I have no idea what people would be interested in knowing about me. Part of me wants to stick to the same stuff my readers would know and another part of me wants to talk about things that are wild and wonderful….except…there isn’t much I haven’t talked about on this blog over my time here.
So I am going to start with a basic bit of information about myself which is my absolute desire to be a creative person but I was only blessed with maybe a left arm that is creative. The rest of me missed out, but I am not sure what it got instead because it certainly wasn’t science.
I always wanted to be an artist. I drew a lot as a teenager and have kept a lot of the things I drew. I was pretty decent in my art classes at high school as well, but life got in the way and my art went by the wayside.
As an adult my husband got me into photography when he bought himself a camera and I ended up falling in love with digitally being able to paint a picture with light in a couple of seconds. It was magical. I adore photography and whilst it would be my dream job, I don’t have the self confidence to push through the negativity.
So I am insanely jealous and impressed with anyone who can make a living off doing art or photography. I think it takes balls of solid steel to push your way through all the negativity and sell yourself, part of the reason I why I love buying artwork, because you need to support the people who do what I can’t.
So if there is anything you are dying to know about me please hit me up in the comments and maybe I could do an AMA type post this week!!
