What's an artist?

I dunno. I consider my fiction art. I consider some of my completely practical and necssary interpersonal skills art, but I've never considered my painting art or respond when I'm called an artist in that fashion. What does that say about my personality?

Hi, I'm Grayson Reyes-Cole and as you may have guessed, I'm a fantasy author. But sometimes, when what I'm writing turns to gibberish before my very eyes, I take a break to paint. It's very theraputic for me, and half my work comes out completely abstract. The other half is usually flowers.

Above is something I painted on Sunday while I listened to my visiting mother discuss all the things she would write about in a blog, but refuse to set one up. *sigh*. It's a bit difficult to tell in the pic, but I'm most please with the vibrant colors in the background. I'm calling it Through the Clouds on a Sunny Day. There are some more pics on my site on the art page. Stop by check them out and the art archives.
In October, I think I'm going to give away some art in celebration of Bright Star's release. Do you think that works for a contest prize?
