Art Runs in the Family!

Meet my Uncle Eric. He's an artist too. Actually, I have 3 uncles and 1 aunt who are artists—all from my Mom's side of the family. Out of 6 children, 4 of them are artists! What are the odds? My Mom felt like she didn't get the gift, but she passed it down to her daughter! 👩‍❤️‍👩

Do any of you have any artists in the family?👩‍🎨

Growing up with all of those artists, my Mom easily recognized the signs in me by the time I was barely out of diapers!

You can always tell who those budding artists are...the kids who can sit for hours drawing and doodling, unaware of the passing time. 🎨

Yep, that was always me...especially in math class! Lol.

So when my Mom, my Aunt Chris and I planned a trip to Maui, we knew a hopper flight to the Big Island to visit Uncle Eric was a must! He'd lived on the island for 30 years, and we had never visited him. I think in my entire life I had only met him once?

And I'm so glad we made the trip! Our time together became the highlight of the entire week! I loved seeing him in his element—an art studio in the middle of the jungle! 🌴🌴🌴

He does a bit of everything—from watercolor on canvas, miniature ship building, to tinting gourds with alchemical dyes. It was so fascinating to watch him in action! 🤹🏼‍♂️

I guess art does run in the family! What's your story?
