Art Is –
The smoosh of a rubber stamp on crisp paper;
The whirr of the sewing machine piecing a block;
The clatter of beads being threaded on a needle;
The snip of a wire cutter attaching a clasp to a bracelet;
The tap of the painter's brush mixing the perfect sunset red;
The prick of a needle piercing layers of fabric;
The rip of watercolor paper being torn into signatures;
The squish of acrylics leaving a tube;
The hum of activity in a room full of dollmakers;
The giggles of artists making tiaras;
The greetings of artists not seen since last year;
The applause of generous artists at Show 'N Tell;
The sounds of lives changing;
The words of joy, the tears of happiness, The bonds of friendship forged through art.
These things and more, are all what Art Is.
Art is waiting for you.
