Matt says he can't even draw stick people. He refuses to play Pictionary, a game I love, due to this inability to draw. (He can draw though if he must for say, garden sketches, and once he made a sunrise sequence on four small squares of paper with oil pastels just for fun. I have seen it and I have the proof.) He used to say he was not at all creative--though he has always had a great eye for art and is frequently offering helpful suggestions that improve my doodles and drawings. But when he started tie-dying all those years ago now he had finally found IT. He found his creative medium. He is a brilliant dye artist making things I'd never even attempt. And he keeps getting better and better with practice. His most recent batch actually made me stop mid-sentence when I noticed them sitting in a nice little pile on the coffee table. I think that they are so good that I want to show them to everyone!
