Dreaming of being this talented

Hi again! A happy monday to everyone. If you have visited my blog this week you will have noticed that I am feeling a certain amount of inadequacy. The cause of all this.........artwork! and basically my inability to produce anything worthy of the name. Try as I might, and boy have I tried, I just don't come up to scratch. Today then I am going to show you the levels to which I aspire, but don't hold your breath.....I don't think it will ever happen!
First up The La La Shop, a veritable treasure trove of glorious art, I can't even choose a favourite they are all so amazing, see if you can. Next, Made by Milla. This lady can turn her hand to just about anything, badges, sketches, spooky doll face brooches and even fascinating collage like the one shown here.
My Folk Lover has the most imaginative prints I have ever seen. I am totally in awe here.
and finally, check out the work of Kelly Rae, what I wouldn't give to be able to produce this kind of art!

Now do you see what I am up against! I am most definitely a frustrated artist/illustrator with a lot of work to do and a lot of ground to make up!
Next week is my last guest post here. I will spend the next 7 days racking my brains in order to leave you with something extra special....until then, have an amazing week! Karen.

There certainly is a huge array of imaginative artists out there and the ones you have featured are amazing. But it is not a competition...we are all artists with a different style. Never underestimate your own artistic abilities and skills. The absolutely beauty of handmade artisans is the variety and unique style we each have to offer. Have a great Monday and a great week!

Wow, so many great pieces... I think the first one is my favorite. But I agree with the first comment, it's not a competition! :)

Hi there. Thanks for both comments. I don't see it as a competition either, I just would love to feel I had the same talent.It's more about me beating myself up because I would love to feel more confident in my own artisitic ability. Sorry if I gave the wrong impression...Karen
