Love to Create Art

True Love Thursday is a weekly post series on the subject of love. I’ll talk about loving yourself and others to ways to making yourself a better person.


Welcome to another day of the All You Need Is Love Project by Carmen at ShuGar Love.

This week’s topic is: Post anything your heart desires about love. Check out last week’s topic.

Since I can post anything, I’m going to write about my love to create art.

I became interested in creating art at a young age. My Mother was an artist, so I got the talent of being able to draw well from her.

When I was 14 years old, I began drawing a lot. One of my favorite things to draw was cartoon characters and random objects. Below are couple of my drawings when I was 14.


I drew a lot during my last year of high school. I drew many objects, big and small, around my parents house. I didn’t draw very many people and that was something that I wanted to work on. So I tried drawing a picture of one of my nephews when he was a baby. I drew the majority of it and I had my Mom help me with the eyes.


Then I went to college and I didn’t pick up a pencil to draw for 2.5 years. Finally one day, I really wanted to draw again, so I pushed my homework aside and drew. It felt so good to draw again. Once I stared drawing again, I loved drawing so much that there were some weeks that I would draw three art pieces in one week. I love the artwork I drew below of one of my nephews. I especially love the details in his hat.


Since I most drew mostly with pencils, I wanted to experiment with some pastels that I received for Christmas one year. Below are couple pieces of art I created. I framed both pieces of art. The peppers artwork is hanging in my kitchen and the rose artwork is hanging in my basement bathroom.



I don’t get to create many art pieces since I’m busing with my two girls, but I do have several artworks that I have done. Last year, I was really inspired to use the canvases and paints that my husband got for me for our first Christmas together. I wanted to paint something different than I normally do. I usually look at an object and draw/paint. Below are couple canvases I painted. The first canvas is hanging in my upstairs bathroom. The second canvas is hanging in my basement bathroom. I still have two blank canvases that need to be painted. Now to think of what I want to paint.



What do you love to do? Do you love to draw or paint?

  1. When I saw the block writing under your Winnie the pooh it took me right back to my teenage years, I loved labelling everything like that!
    My favourite piece of yours is the rose – beautiful.

  2. Looks great! Thank you for sharing this post at City of Creative Dream’s City of Links on Friday! I appreciate you taking the time to party with me. Hope to see you again this week 🙂
