I am also going to show you some of my paintings I have scattered around the house. I am not very confident about my work but I do REALLY enjoy painting. It takes me away... I don't know how to describe it ... so how about a couple of quotes?
"To create one's own world in any of the arts takes courage." Georgia O'Keeffe
"Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once he grows up." Pablo Picasso
"Art allows us to find ourselves and lose ourselves at the same time." Thomas Merton
"I tell you, the more I think, the more I feel that there is nothing more truly artistic than to love people." Vincent Van Gogh
To make art you have to- be brave, be a kid, lose yourself, and love other people. I will MAKE ART!
Most of these paintings are in my sunroom with 7 windows and glass framing so I couldn't get rid of the glare in the photos. You may have noticed a FLORAL theme. I think I need to push myself to branch out a little- Dontcha think?
Art Room update: I am diligently working on the chaotic, cluttered, confused, jumbled, littered mess that is my art/craft room and will be showing some pics soon of this HISTORIC, EARTHSHAKING, MOMENTOUS Work In Progress. (It needed lots of adjectives!)
Thank you so much for taking the time to read this and I would love for you to say hello! Also, if you would hit the G+1 button I will know you visited. Thank you, Thank you.
