 |  August 10, 2009

Have you vistied the blog of artist Katherine Treffinger? If you haven’t, you should! Not only does she post her fantastic artwork but she also includes posts of different artists answering the same question:

What meaning does doing art have for you?

She was so kind to share my answer to this very important question on her blog. Go check it out and see other artists’ answers too. It is really interesting to read all the different thoughts on the same question.

    I'm so glad to have discovered your work today through Katherine's blog. I think your paintings and encaustic works are lovely. I'm a mixed media painter and have recently become very intrigued by painting with beeswax (though I've yet to give it a try), and I love the spirituality and gentle mood of your paintings.

    great answer!!!
    i have always thought that my art is my therapy, my meditation!
    my sacred time, when nothing else matters except the canvas in front of me.

    Hey Bridgette - thank you! I know from one mom of young kids to another - we NEED our creative time or we get really unfulfilled!!!
