Week 6: “Gift”

When I first became an artist, first created something with my own hands, I gave away my work. It was simple when I was a child, to draw a picture and give it away. My mother had countless drawings, my grandparents, my aunt and eventually cousins. Holidays it was expected – I could make it […]

I had no idea.

I have 1,182 subscribers to this blog. ::blink blink:: Um. Well, hello there! Call it me being naive, but I literally had no idea.
