Buried Treasure

I've joined this blogging collaboration though I feel a bit of a fraud since I'm not really an artist - just an ethusiastic dabbler! We've been encouraged to trawl through our blogs to rediscover those little titbits of buried treasure and bring them out to sparkle in the sunshine once again. Well, my bright shiny jewel is not so much an artwork but more the key to the chest. You see, for many years the treasure lay hidden under the sands of time. Life and its many priorities moved on above it, pressing and compacting it beneath the surface until its whereabouts was nearly forgotten. One thing remained though - the magic little key. Once I had the confidence to hold it in my hand it drew me back to the chest and out of it burst a free spirit full of colour and passion. It fed and nurtured me leading me back on the path of self-expression. I write, I draw, I paint, I create. I feel alive!

See where it started... and then discover that there really is a treasure chest involved in this story!

  1. if you ask me you should change your 'about me' bit to 'I am a writer'not I'm going to be a writer. You are also an artist. I loved delving into your treasure chest with you and those early drawings are adorable and vibrant.
