So What Makes You Special?

This is the question for week 12 of Mark McGuinness’ The 21 Century Creative. What makes me unique? Different? What can I do that is better than anyone? I thought about this question as I painted this flower. Why do I do what I do? Am I good?

Off the top of my head here goes:

Ideas. I have lots of them! Great ones!

I am really good with optimism. Even on dark days I almost refuse to be anything but positive.

Happiness takes work. I work at it.

I’d like to think that those who know me or you who read my post comment that my work makes you smile. I bring color and a positive environment. Oh I hope it’s true.

What is different about me is that

I am not a good cook but I like to cook.

I can’t sing but I love to sing and I often do!

I am no good at art in the sense of realistically drawing/painting a town in Mexico. Oh but the flowes I think I can do that.

What makes me an artist is that I am curiously creative. or is it creatively curious?

There’s this sense of ease and playfulness in my work. The color, textures and ideas IDEAS are cool. I like my ideas, Period.

I have always been curious about the animals. About the world.

Well that is all for now.

What makes you special?
