Art is amazing, art is life that we aliving and art is what we do. Doing art without emotion, is like a chocolate cake without sugar
Art is not what you see, but art is what you do and make other artists and people 's see. I like beading and mixed media because those are very strong techniques
Art is life task and lends courage to both artists and views!!!!
