I am what I am
Here is my latest painting. When I started out I had a completely different theme in mind. As it developed so did the meaning. Through all of my self discovery from writing in my journal and sketching each morning I have come up with this. "I am what I am." I still view the world the same way I did when I was teenager. I still think I look the same way I did when I was twenty. At least in my eyes I do. Oh I know I do not look the same way. I know I have wrinkles and a saggy butt. I know I have grown in many ways and learned from my mistakes. I have incorporated new techniques and styles in my life and in my art. I realized this as I look at my old art work. My drawings look just like they did when I was young. I hated the way I drew. I felt my drawings were juvenile. After all these years the way I draw has not changed. It is all right. It is who I am. I'm OK with it. I have learned to embrace myself and love who I am. It is a good thing. It is OK to be me.
