Photo taken by contributor Jim, a man from the SouthWest of Texas who has struggled with depression for much of his life.
About this photo: “I can remember as a kid at grade school, I was always envious of the kids that showed up with the huge 92 pack of crayons. Heck, that big box even had its own sharpener built into the back of the box. I was lucky if I got the small box of 16.
I really didn’t know what I might create if only I had all of those colors to choose from. Truth is I would not of had any more creativity with 92 colors.
It has taken me years, and I am still learning that it isn’t how large your palette is, it is more how you mix with what you got.
I still jump all over the place with my creativity and I shoot such a hodgepodge of subject matter. I read of how you need to find your niche, your voice, your passion, style, genre your ….. But, I still love that big box of crayons and I keep looking for my true color.
Paint with what you got!”
