Everyone's heard the old saying, "you have to suffer to be an artist." It's a daunting thought when we look at it that way but if we reverse the thought, "art we like, portrays an emotion," it's not so scary.
A few weeks ago, I knew I wanted to draw something but couldn't find inspiration. I was missing my daughters who have both moved too far away to easily visit. I had recently bought flowers to cheer up my house and thought how nice it would be to send them some too.
That was when the idea of a cuddly teddy bear with an armful of flowers came to me.
They say you should create a card with someone in mind and this card was created for both my daughters. So this morning when I read that Greeting Card Universe made it the Design of the day it confirmed it. Successful art (portrays, inspires, depicts),( not sure which word works best) emotion.
