For me art is an extension of my soul. To be able to take a pencil or brush and use those simple tools to convey a child's mischievous twinkle or the obvious care that a family has put into their home is amazing to me. I guess it always be a real blessing for me. There is a quote I like though I can't quite remember who said it. "God's gift to you is your talent, you thank Him by using it". I have come to realize how much truth there is in that statement.
