My older sister was born with the artistic gene. As a teenager she had a sketch pad full of drawings. She had the innate ability to take a white page and turn it into a work of art. Then there was me, I could barely draw a stick person. I wanted a sketch pad like hers, filled with drawings of animals, cartoon characters and scenery, but I never did.
As we grew, so did her abilities. She could take a pile of dried flowers and turn it into a beautiful arrangement. A piece of plain card stock skillfully transformed into a lovely greeting card, by her creative touch. Ten years ago, she gave me a card making starter kit, to this day, it’s never been opened.
I’ve accepted the fact that I’m not artistic. I’ll never be able to draw a scenic view of the ocean or paint majestic mountains, but that’s okay. We’re all born with our own unique gifts and talents, mine just isn’t drawing.
What talent do you wish you had?
