Creativity Boot Camp ~ Day Two

I'll be posting the work I've done over the last week in separate posts over the next few days...Instead of one long-ish post...

Random word prompt...Picnic ~ A midnight picnic for one with wine, words and inspirational skies...
Creativity Boot Camp ~ Picnic
It's high time to change the negative connotations of "Artist"...

An Artist is perpetually poor, unstable, irresponsible, weird...

An Artist IS...

A Creator...
Aware...
Provocative...
Rich...
Colourful...
Creative...
Inspirational...
Human...

An Artist can have the same traits as any other title...They often carry two titles. Doctors are Artists. Janitors are Artists. Engineers are Artists. Taxi Drivers are Artists.
I am an Artist.

I have only been able to call myself an Artist in the last couple of years though I've sold and created art for most of my life...I still feel strange telling people exactly what I do because it encompasses a lot...I paint. I photograph. I write. I create textile pieces. I've worked in interior design. I make jewellry. {Did you know Canadians spell jewellry with two "L's"?}

What do you "see" when someone says Artist?

A dear imagineer once told me that not everyone is artist by profession but everyone is able to live creatively and artistically...I think it is true!

When someone say 'Artist'', I answer :
'Yes, here I am and proud to be !
