“To practice any art, no matter how well or badly, is a way to make your soul grow. So do it.” Kurt Vonnegut
This is my mantra!
It’s not so much about art-it’s the PROCESS OF MAKING IT, LIVING IT, BEING INSPIRED BY IT!
Creativity in any and all forms stretches the heart, expands the soul, thrills the senses, and nourishes the spirit.
After my recent sudden, humbling illness, I realized life is too short to fritter away doing anything less than LIVING VOLUPTUOUSLY! So…I dragged out my paint box and had soooo much fun painting backgrounds for a new art journal I’m going to work on all summer long.
“Inspiration does exist but it must find you working.” Pablo Picasso
I didn’t wait for inspiration, I just jumped in, slathering my favorite colors (purple, aquamarine, cobalt, and lime green) around the pages–layering decorative papers, old maps, and bits of fabric through the journal. More of everything is sooo much better!
Hours flew by and my heart was overflowing! I felt totally “in the moment” and none of the cares of the world intruded.
“The artist’s world is limitless. It can be found anywhere, far from where he lives or a few feet away. It is always on his doorstep.” Paul Strand
and I make every corner of my world shine with my unique personality…
My creativity is not so much about art making as it is about LIFE MAKING!
I’m so happy that The Cottage mirrors my creative spirit.
“I am seeking. I am striving. I am in it with all my heart.” Vincent van Gogh
Life is luscious! Go out and celebrate it!
