What makes an artist? Is it just the ability to put pen to paper, or brush to canvas? To bring to life an image of fantasy or whimsy, or landscape or portrait on a page? In my life I have come to see art in many different forms. In the world around me, and in the smiles of my children and grandchildren. I have seen it in the way they laugh and they way that they carry themselves as they grew. I see it every day in God's creations all around us. But it took me a very long time to see it in myself.
