Why isn't art a verb?

You can be drawing, painting, sketching, quilting, collaging but you can't be arting!!  We need a new verb for those of us who work/play in a variety of forms.  I'm tired of telling people I play with glue and paper.  Maybe I should say I'm investigating the properties of various forms of adhesive mediums for use with tissue paper.  That should keep them guessing.

Anyway, I haven't blogged for awhile (even posting blogs has a verb!) but I have been "arting".

First, lots of zentangles!  I prefer to call it "ink art"!

And a couple of collages:

This one started with tissue paper for a background and Sakura Pen-touch Gold

And finally, one that looks better in real life.  Or maybe I just think it does. . .
