Story Telling on Canvas

I am taking a free on-line canvas story-telling class with one of my favorite painters, Mystele
(www.mystele.com). She is one of the most creative and generous artist that I know.
Mystele says (I feel like a student saying this is what my teacher said), our marks are the stories we tell, and our stories are bigger than just us.
There is a difference between painting a pictue and telling a story, and you are that difference. You are the missing link, what you feed your creativity shows up in your painting. Your life is whatever you need to step into or back away from-------
I realize that I have beeen painting this way however; Mystele has helped me to find the words to describe what I do. Be sure and go down to the first painting and see the progress. Thank you.

Very wise words and I agree. I try to tell a story when I do my sculptures but have no idea if people get it or if they just put their own story to it. Either way its ok;)
