Fantastic beach art by nature artist James Brunt
We have had a clear out this morning and my artist kids have gifted me some of their old unused sketch books. They're poor quality paper which is ideal - I will feel less guilty about the risk of 'wasting' them. #perfectionist
I'm curious; what is the definition of 'art' here? What constitutes creativity?
I would love to take up drawing and painting again but I suffer from the perfectionist gene (or whatever). ☹
I'm not sure if it's associated with ADHD or ASD but I always expect to be good at things and then I'm crushed when it turns out I'm not. 😕 I also struggle with a lack of ability to conjure up images in my mind. Am I a hopeless cause? 🤔
Recently rediscovered masterpiece by sculptor Antonio Canova: recumbent Mary Magdalene, found in somebody's overgrown garden and sold earlier this month at Christie's. I can't find the price it sold for but estimates were between £5 & £10 million!

" 'Dogor' An 18,000 Year-Old Puppy That Was Discovered In The Siberian Permafrost. He’s So Well Preserved That His Nose And Whiskers Are Still Mostly Intact. DNA sequencing has been unable to identify the animal as either a dog or a wolf.
The specimen was named Dogor by scientists, with the word meaning 'friend' (Cyrillic: Догор) in the local Yakut language."
Perpetually bored and sad, mostly. 🦕🐙🐞🦝🦊🐺🐱🐣🌻🦄🍄
