Sadly, the answer was no. Put a canvas (or clay or scissors or glue or fabric) in front of me and I’ll just make a giant mess. I am not crafty or artistically gifted in any way. But later in life, I realized two things:
1. Assuming writing is an art, I’m artistic in a different way and
2. Even though I can’t draw or paint, I love art and design like nobody’s business.
Artists, designers and other creative types — THANK YOU for your efforts to support the Red Cross in innovative and beautiful ways. I may not be an artist myself, but I can definitely appreciate the talent.
