Last year, one of the essays I wrote for Hello Humans was about accepting myself and declaring myself an artist. I had been many things: an accountant, a teacher, a restaurant owner to name a few -…READ MORE

Profile Information

 

After retiring from 30 years in education, I discovered, shockingly, that I had been a workaholic. I had always written and made things and said for a long time, "I make stuff" before I settled into an ease with calling myself "an artist" with any conviction. I live in a small community in Texas called Hopewell and create and paint in our log cabin as well as at my studio in Huntsville, Texas (@HeatonHouseStudio). I write for Hello Humans, contribute to The Huntsville Item (@Kat Bailey on Facebook) and post my writing on Medium. I love to upcycle and spend a little time each month combing resale shops for inspiration and unusual art (@SassyKatStuff).  Life as an artist is good.  My website: hopewellkat.com is updated as I can get to it; but, I'm found on Instagram, Twitter, and lots of other social media sites as HopewellKat, Hopewell Kat, and Kat Bailey.

I have a dilemma.

While updating inventory in my space at a co-op shop, a flash of horror came over me as I looked at several…

thanks Kat    I agree, I used to have difficulty drawing a horse facing forward and I'm afraid the only way to get it right is by practising it over and over. It will come, I promise. Have a great day     Ed
