    I agree and well said, creativity is something I enjoy everyday whether it’s just putting together an outfit, taking a photograph or papercrafting, so we shouldn’t feel guilty or pressured when our passion changes between mediums, it’s all an artform, ever evolvibg. That’s what keeps us interested afterall right?

    Why limit yourself, right? Art is art, the medium should be whatever inspires you today!

    I know where you’re coming from.. I can draw well, and I can paint well, and these are things most people in my life wish they could do – so I feel like I should because I can. But it isn’t where my passion is, so the years have passed since I picked up a paintbrush! I am happy doing what I am doing though.

    And one day, you’ll see something that calls out to be painted, and you’ll paint it!

    You’ve explained yourself well (and me too :). I think it’s all a part of growing, as a person and as an artist. The mediums may change, just like the artist working with them.
    When I was expecting my 1st child, I was enthralled with ceramics and clay. 25 years later, I still love clay, however, it’s not my main outlet now. I’ve branched out into jewelry, papercrafts, crocheting, photography and am picking up where I left off (years ago) with painting.
    There’s been many distractions over the years, but I’m still driven to create, however and whenever I can. I think it’s the NEED to make things that allows me to call myself an artist.
    You said “Creativity is fluid and I want to flow with it.” I LOVE THAT!!

    […] has been easier with the supportive emails and comments I’ve received regarding this previous post. But I think there are still those who would wonder, how can you give up watercolour for crafts? […]
