You Must Be An Artist If .......

I came across a list of ‘You must be an artist if….…’ on www.painting.about.com/ and have adapted it. Feel free to add your own in the comments.

You must be an artist if:

  1. You’re often late because you suddenly know exactly what that detail of your latest painting/sewing/writing/jewelry piece needed and just had to fix it while it was fresh in your mind.

  2. You stay awake late at night thinking about your latest project.

  3. You explain your bad housekeeping by saying, "it's a work-in-progress..."

  4. The only piece of new furniture you have in your home is an easel/sewing machine/kiln.

  5. You have no health insurance.

  6. You do judge a book by its cover.

  7. You watch the latest kids' digital animation movies and drool over the effects as much as the story.

  8. You buy art supplies instead of food.

  9. You create more than you talk.
  10. You're in love ... with your studio.



Johnny Depp in his satin little boy blue outfit was freakin a few people out...so i've replaced it with Depp as General E Lee, it's better although not looking as good as he would if he'd been dressed as Adam! Pic also from http://www.worth1000.com/

Hey Harriet said...

I'm someone who struggles to think of myself as an artist, but after having read this list & relating to it so much, I totally believe that I am an artist after all ;D

Great blog Chrisy! Love the idea of you showcasing indie writers too! Not enough of that happening in the world. Yay you!

Twinkle Star Art said...

Yeah that confirms it then! I agree with all the comments in the list except for the housework one. I'm the only one in the family who doesn't seem to notice my house is in a mess, so no explanations needed ;)

Love your new blog, congrats on losing your blog virginity!

Hot Fudge said...

After reading your list, I am convinced I must be the Da Vinci of the sewing world. Fabric before food every time!

Congratulations on a great blog - I look forward to more gems.

11. There isn't a room in the house devoid of art supplies/beads/fabric (fill in your obsession)!

Thank goodness The Husband carries the health insurance.

Love your blog!

Penny said...

Hmm... yeah I'm not such a fan of the Johnny painting either! I love Johnny, but not in blue silk.

rabble said...

yeah, I have no health insurance, but I have art supplies stuffed in every nook and cranny my house has! :D

That's me to a "t". I love a good laugh.

Thanks for the encouragement.

Heli Chick said...
