To the editor,
As a person who can’t draw a straight line, I sort of envied my peers who had natural, artistic ability.
I was encouraged after reading the article in the Truro Daily News on Friday, July 11, that there is a possibility of another art gallery opening in Truro.
Recently, on a beautiful Nova Scotia day, I was enjoying a few local craft-beer growlers when I got a burst of energy and decided to do some painting. While transporting two gallons of paint from the storage area to the end use area I tripped over a piece of plywood.
The paint ended up on the plywood as a partially finished work of art.
After having a seat and contemplating my situation and a couple more growlers, I decided to finish my word of art.
The new proposed gallery sounds like an ideal location. As a new artist I would sell my work for the cost of the paint, used plywood and the growlers. No labour cost. As you can see there is great potential for high revenue generation production in the art world, which could create lucrative jobs for young people and provide a place for all levels of government to give grants. Something we dearly need in Nova Scotia. Good luck to fellow artists.
