When I am asked why I write, why I paint, the reply is simple.
I do it because I have to.
I bleed soul words and press my heart to canvas through a laden brush, and it puts my heart back in order.
And like many, if not all, artists, I long to provide for my family’s needs with my creative work. But if it didn’t work out like that — if I never made another thin cent from what I create — I would do it anyway. I would have to.
Creativity, for me, is life.
Today I am writing over at Thorns and Gold as a part of Tanya's Christianity + Creativity series!
