Six requirements on living with an artist…

Work in progress...


After returning home yesterday from the grocery, I asked Leicalady “would you be so kind and put up the groceries?” She mocked me the rest of the day with many “would you be so kind…” Living with an artist is fun! Leicalady is not only passionate about her art but also everything else she cares about – our two precious boys, Annie, our seven dogs, seven horses, two Longhorns and of course Miss Piggy. The passion in her life is reflected in her art. I have learned over the years, that there are some important requirements to success in living with an artist. I am happy to share them…


1. Be patient.


2. Be supportive.


3. Give them their space.


4. Don’t make it about the money.


5. Cherish every work they create.


6. Share the passion!


Leicalady has so much more than the creative ability to mold perception and shape moods using the color in her brushes. Her artistic endeavors have been an inspiration to me for decades. Living with an artist is easy. It is perhaps one of the most rewarding relationships one can have…it can teach you things about yourself you didn’t know. Art is something amazing – make it a part of your life. Share it. No matter what type of art you make, it can be one of the most fulflling things that you can share in a relationship.


Living with an artist – no problem. Just never say “would you be so kind”. Just saying…
