Don't you love them?
Especially rainy Saturdays.
I try my hand at abstract now and then
but it almost always ends up looking like something.
Always so meditative though.
I saw this quote the other day
and loved it:
Modern art = I could do that + Yeah, but you didn't
Then it was time for a National Geographic portrait,
and this guy begged my attention,
for whatever reason.
the lovely hair?
it's the feeling of FREEDOM.
Sitting in a canoe in a wide open space.
My kinda guy.
Acrylic paint on sheet music...
although there's very little music on this one.
a bit more detail...
I was obviously tired by the end of this one.
Check out the claw hands... ;-)
It is what it is.
a little visitor in our yard this morning...
always so beautiful.
Life is all about balance, isn't it?
We find time for work,
for making meals,
and preparing lunch boxes...
why is it still so difficult for so many of us
who are artists at heart
to make time to practice our art?
Do we consider it frivolous?
Do we consider it less important
than real work
like doing the dishes
or cutting the lawn
or putting in a wash load?
I'm quite comfortable
with dirty dishes in the sink.
They'll get done eventually.
But i am not comfortable
with going days without making art.
I believe it is so important as artists
to give ourselves at least a bit of time each day
to practice our art.
Putting paint to canvas.
Creating a melody.
Writing a poem.
Developing a dance.
Making a sculpture...
The world needs more right brained people.
Really - it does.
What if your painting
is the one who inspires someone else
to become a full fledged artist?
What if the song you write
touches someone and
makes them want to pursue the passionate life
of a musician or a songwriter?
So in reality, you're not only creating your art,
but you're creating opportunities
for other little art hearts out there.
Leave it to me to give your art purpose,
