Yeah, but…

Everyone has a talent. Some people’s talent is to annoy others. Yes, it does come naturally to some, but others learn by practicing over and over again, usually on their coworkers.

But that’s not what this post is about. It’s about acknowledging your talent and owning it. Sure you can dabble in other arts, but be proud of the one that is naturally yours instead of constantly looking at someone else’s and thinking it would be better to have that talent.

As this month is about celebrating women and their contributions to society, allow me to  introduce you to my sisters. I have five of them (one is by marriage, but we’re counting her). Three are talented artists. One, like my mother, loves to try new techniques. One promotes art in Alaska and besides being awesomely talented, picked enough Juniper buds to have a craft beer named after her town. Another whose ability to turn other people’s garbage into a fairytale backyard and 3-D art.

They get this talent from my mother (although I did have Zane Gray books that my Dad doodled in, so there’s some latent talent there, too).

Here’s three of my mother’s artwork that was recently in a show in Prescott:



Each piece tells its own story.

And while my fourth sister doesn’t always use canvas to create her art, she stages homes. Which tells a story about family and possibilities that help sell real estate.

And lastly, my fifth sister uses teaching as a medium to pass on to her students how molecules are transformed into other molecules (a clear beginning, middle, and end). She’s also an author of a book.

Having been around other authors, I appreciate the enormous amount of support I receive from my creative sisters.

Until next time.

    Not to mention the sister that writes so many hilarious, entertaining and scary books (not necessarily all in the same book)! I don’t know how you do it! Very talented (and yes, I may be a little jealous).
