Thankful for Art

Owl by collage artist Megan Coyle

Art has had a role in my life for as long as I can remember, and I can't imagine a life without creating or marveling at the creations of others. Other artists have inspired me. The art world in general has motivated me to keep moving forward with my work.

Even when I'd doubt myself and swear that I'd give up - I was never able to quit art cold turkey. And that's a good thing too. I'm incredibly thankful for how my artistic career is shaping up. I'm content that I have time to do what I love and that I've had a chance to meet so many great people as a result of visiting galleries and exhibitions. I'm glad that by pursuing my art so fiercely, I have willingly put myself in situations that made me feel uncomfortable - just so I could adapt and adjust to new things.

Mr. Turtle by collage artist Megan Coyle

Art has made life richer, and I'm excited about all the possibilities that are out there as I continue to work and pursue my artistic dreams.

I'm thankful for the creative life.

I hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving. What are you thankful for?

Megan, I love the owl. We are currently in the process of buying a block of land in the rural land west of the mountains (I will be blogging it next year). I'm thinking of calling it Boobook which is the name of a local owl.

What am I thankful for .. the beauty of nature and the joy of living so close to it.
