What do you do?

I am at a party and somebody asks me what I do. Do I tell them what I do all day? (housework, errands, childcare and lots of painting, drawing and preparing for submissions and shows, marketing, calling  and other administrative things) Or are they asking me what I am? Can I even separate that? I say I am an artist. Next question is usually, what kind of art do you do. ha ha ha, well I am all over the place. I paint, I draw, I use all mediums. I am always learning and pushing myself. Well, what is your style, do you paint landscapes or pet portraits? I do have a style that is mine but I am so close to it that it is sometimes hard to articulate what makes it my own. When I look back at the past year I see abstract designs, repeating leaf motifs, washy watery arcs and scallops, moody watercolour portraits. Large scale abstract paintings. Oil landscapes. Collages. Line drawings. Just click on my gallery and you will see.img_4122
