Is something I have had all along and that is an insatiable desire to draw,
paint and create what is inside my head and my heart.
There is not one day where I do not need to make my mark by painting a scene, a background, doodling a pattern, sketching an object or scribbling an imaginary face. I need to do it, I have to do it or I feel there is something important missing in my life.
I feel terribly incomplete if I have not, at least, scribbled in my art journal.
And so here is what I do to make me happy and give me the satisfaction of having fulfilled my needs. I give myself permission to create and I approve of the results of my playful creations.
I paint my own reality. The only thing I know is that I paint because I need to, and I paint whatever passes through my head without any other consideration.-- Frida Kahlo
I find that women can be creative in total isolation. I know excellent women artists who do original work without any response to speak of. Maybe they are used to a lack of feedback. Maybe they are tougher. -- Elaine de Kooning
