This site has encouraged me to tap into my creative side and use fine art as an outlet to the outside world. I have always enjoyed different forms of art as I am able to view stories, point of views, and the creativity of others. As a child I always enjoyed expressing myself in different forms. Combining different colors, shapes, and features creates a “masterpiece” that provokes emotion. This site has encouraged me to do the same with my now 8 year old daughter. As I see her love for fine arts I want to help enhance her abilities to continue freely expressing herself. Art is a very important aspect in our household. I would love to move her beyond creating beautiful paintings and move onto using more raw materials such as metals, woods, and even glass to create new pieces worth smiling about. While the hustle and bustle of life keep me stressed this site has just reminded me how much creating or even just viewing a piece of beautiful artwork can make all the difference in the world.
