I don’t know why but I’ve never felt like I was an artist. Maybe because I don’t live in a loft in New York? Maybe because I don’t have bright green pants? Maybe because I don’t own a beret? Maybe because I’ve never seriously taken a brush to canvas? Whatever the reason I’ve never been able to say “I am an artist”. I was using watercolors last night and talking to Jared about something of mine getting published and I asked him if I could call myself a publish crafter? scrapbooker? decorator? and then at 2am when I was still awake I thought “I am a published artist”.
Then I realized I have several deadlines I need to meet - I am a procrastinating artist.
