    Gorgeous
    The purpose of life is not to be happy. It is to be useful, to be honorable, to be compassionate, to have it make some difference that you have lived and lived well.

    Thought I would share some of my latest work with you all. It is interesting to look back at my life and realise if it had not been for getting a mental illness I would never have done any of this.

    Pen both the ceramics and the intricate line drawings are brilliant.

    I think everyone is talented, just in different ways. I cannot crochet or knit to save my life and I see what my friends make and think they are way more talented than me. My pictures will never keep me warm like a crocheted blanket!
    My tutor would say that there is no such thing as "talent" just determination and practice I am not sure I entirely agree with him but I think if you love doing something enough you will spend time learning how to do it and how to improve doing it.
    I am also not able to draw a lot of things. I cannot draw a human likeness, my life drawings at college looked like something off Dr Who! I would not attempt a pet portrait (the owner would probably come after me with a knife when they say the picture!), my landscapes are a bit ropy as well but I have found what I can draw and I enjoy doing it.
    People sometimes ask what I enjoy doing the most, the pottery or the drawings and its a difficult thing to answer as I enjoy both in the same amount. I have a "butterfly" brain and I like to flit between doing different things to keep my interest.
    Success is not final, Failure is not fatal.

    Beautiful, but I so adore the highland cows!
