Let me compare painting to sewing. I enjoy both activities. I’ve sewed on production lines and to me that’s neither art or craft, only a job and not fun.  Sometimes  I sew clothes.  I’m following someone else’s instructions but I still have to make a lot of creative decisions, which pattern would work best, which fabrics, for starters. When I paint I’m following the steps I learned in art school. A lot of sewing projects don’t work out and a lot of paintings don’t either.

 

Sewing can be frustrating, but the more skill you get by practicing the more creative you can get because you know what didn’t work before, just like painting.

 

It’s all just hand work. When I paint, is my mind in a special place? Yes, it’s in the zone. Sewing can also make you forget the world for a little while. Compare the brainwaves. Is there a big difference? When I paint do I suddenly get enlightened? It’s the thing about using your hands and eyes at the same time to make something. It’s not that painting is on some much higher level of the mind. They’re so close I can’t tell the difference.

 

Good teachers make a lot of difference. With painting or sewing. They start you on a certain path then you have to spend years working on your own.

 

If you have enough dexterity to sew you can paint but taking a class can help. It’s not something you’re born with. No one is born knowing how to cut and sew fabrics or how to use a sewing machine and painters have to practice their skills too.

 

I call myself an artist and in the past I called myself a seamstress. It’s not like I rose to a  higher level of being.

 

As always, feel free to opine. I’m not going to fight and you can’t hurt my feelings. I like to hear what others think on this subject.

They never gave me a gun and I’m getting old here, but at least I never needed one.

The corona virus thing has given me a new outlook on life.

Every day that I wake up and I’m not sick I go around all day feeling like Charlie Sheen, “Winning!” Every day I ain’t dead yet I’m winning!  And the funny thing is I don’t have to do anything to win. This game is so easy.

Hell, even my computer fixed itself. Yes, those annoying lines went away on their own again. Thank you, MacBook.
