I work with adults with special needs and most of them have no concept or imagination for art so teaching them art is really challenging...even showing them samples of works they have very little comprehension to experiment on their own...coloring alone most will use  just one color so you will have to tell them to change their colours once in its ok....I sitll love what I do....

That sounds like a very interesting and worth while job Nelson, as well as challenging. Art is such a therapeutic endeavor for everyone. I've always enjoyed other peoples art ,but this year has really opened my eyes as to what it takes for artists to get their visions out and in a form that everyone can enjoy or at least think about. I don't always know where my ideas are coming from but it is very cleansing and satisfying, getting it down on paper. Thank you so much for your comments.

It is Sharon....been doing it for 24 years now...and yes, getting your ideas down on paper is cleansing and satisfying...been stuck in an artist block for more than half a year and jus couldnt get anything down on paper....had the ideas but jus couldnt get them was very very frustration...finally getting back into the swing of things and I think what really helped me was finding inspiration from other ppls works...somehow I was drawn to many of Pat's pieces and that got the fuel burning and the motor running again....LOL....I am trying to drawn everyday like I did back in the day....I could draw everyday all day and I want that drive back again...only the coloring gets to me everytime....Id rather draw than colour....hahaha.....anyways, enuff of my rambling....have a peaceful Sunday
