When words fail me

How’s that for a grabbing blog post title?

It’s a bit of misnomer, however, as words rarely fail me (more like I occasionally fail them!). I do, however, like to dabble in other forms of artistic expression and while I would never call myself an artist, more and more often these days, I find myself taking a black Sharpie (TM) to paper or playing with paint.

And seeing as I think this is going to be a regular part of my life, I decided to dedicate a page on my website to sharing some of my creations. There are only two pieces up right now (“Family Portrait” and “I am your mother!”), but I’ll add more as they come into being (and when I take digital images of existing ones).

How about you? Are you strictly a writer or do you create in other modes and mediums as well? If the latter, do you feel it adds to or detracts from your writing? How so? Inquiring minds want to know. 😉

  1. This is why I like my photography: it’s creative but different, gives me a new outlet, something that doesn’t tax or overshadow my writing.

    I love your creations. And I’m glad you’re sharing them!

  2. Dear Jen–

    Your photos really are Art. I agree too; my other explorations don’t overshadow my writing at all. Fun!

    I’m glad you’re enjoying my creations, thank you. 🙂
