I keep getting put down by people. Especially for my art.
“Cant you make something someone would like to look at?”
A common question. The other day, my teacher handed back our dreamcatchers. We had made them for a school project concerning Indians (and their beliefs.) Well, my teacher went up to me and personally gave my dreamcatcher back to me saying, “Christine, This is an excellent dreamcatcher! I dont know why I like it so much, but it is so attractive!”
Of course, I felt flattered. But alas…
A kid sitting next to me said,“Christine. I know Catherine did that dreamcatcher for you because you have absolutely NO artistic talent.”
Gee Thanks. I felt deflated. :rolleyes:
