Own Original Art




This is the very first piece of artwork I bought with my own money when I was in fifth or sixth grade. Silk batik. I remember the day perfectly. My mom and aunt took us cousins to an outdoor art show. We always went to art shows. But on this day I guess I was old enough and had my own money and my mom planted the seed that I could buy something with my money. It made me feel like an adult I guess. This was the first time I looked at all of the art pieces in a different way. Looking at the prices thinking which one would I want to have, which one could I afford and was worth me spending all of my money on? I saw three or four pieces that were in my budget, but this was the one I loved the most. It was five dollars more than I had. We ended up back in the car leaving and I had no art piece. My mom gave me the extra money to buy this piece. I remember running out of the car by myself all the way back to this artist's tent. Would I be able to find my way all the way back through this giant art show in the park? I found her and I bought this piece. Walking back to the car by myself with my first art purchase in hand was an incredible feeling. It was always in my room until I left for college. I recently found it in a box at my moms house. I remembered it, and now that I have my own kids, I remember being young and na├»ve and innocent and how large that art show in the park seemed to be. I remember how proud I was to buy my first art piece. 

Because of this experience I am going to think of something to have for the young and innocent to buy at my tent at Artscape Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Garden this year April 28-30.
