Sharing vs. Caring
So, I have been getting some very specific questions lately. Questions about my technique. Fair questions, I suppose. This is a complicated issue and one that many people have strong opinions about. It’s about sharing. Some of you might know the Salvation Army signs that say, “Sharing is Caring”. I had a boyfriend that used to say that ALL the time. It started off being cute and then it got annoying. I still love that old boyfriend; he is a dear dear friend now, never the less, I never completely bought the sharing is caring bit. I know, I know the world would be a better place…If only I would divulge my deepest darkest secrets about the techniques that I've developed and use in my work. See, I do believe in sharing. I love to promote friends, I love to see other people successful, I even like to teach people some of things I do. Just not everything. I don’t think any Artist or any person for that matter, gives all their secrets away, even the ones who say they do. There wouldn’t be any mystery left without some things withheld. Call me selfish, greedy, a hoarding you know what, but all’s I’ve got to say is, a girl’s got to have her secrets.
