It’s hard to believe it is the eve of Christmas Eve. This past year has been a whirlwind of amazing things both in my home and my art life. I’m continually in awe of the blessings I’ve been given.
The life lesson that I keep learning over and over is ‘Change’. Nothing stays the same forever.
One thing that hasn’t changed in my life is my love for art. Art has seen me through the ups and downs and pulled me through some really rotten times.
Art nurtured me through a tough marriage and bloomed with the support of my second husband. It has grown more than I ever dared to dream through sharing.
Sharing your art, putting it ‘out there’ can be a scary thing, but it is through sharing it that we truly reach our creative potential.
I would like to encourage you all to find ways to share your passion for art in the year 2010. It can be as simple as a homemade card for a friend, or as big as sending your work in for publication, or maybe teaching a class to some children, even sharing it on your blog; whatever it is, is not as important as the act of doing it. We create because it’s who we are, but if we keep it hidden we aren’t showing others who we truly are.
We love art.
We need to create.
We are Artists.
My DH shared his Christmas Miracle on his blog and it makes me realize how much we all affect each other.
