Are you an Artist? #MondayMusings




Are You an Artist?

Do I have to make artwork that dazzles the masses?

Do I have to pay money and take lots of classes?

Do I have to sell art for a very large sum?

Do I have to wear black and be totally glum?

Do I have to suffer terribly in order to create?

Do I have to have a big ego and think I’m great?

Do I have to network, see and be seen?

Do I have to act like a Drama Queen?


Don’t worry and stress, it’s never too late

To be an artist, I just have to CREATE!

I am writing this in response to the prompt 
at Write Tribe for Monday Musings - Are You an Artist?
