Messy Art Love

"Happiness is produced not so much by great pieces of good fortune that seldom happen, as by little advantages that occur every day."  -Benjamin Franklin

It's been nearly a month and one day since I've blogged. It's not that I didn't have anything to's just I've been busy with other things...staying connected through Instagram and my Facebook art groups...Mind.Body.Soul and Paint Happy. If you haven't stopped by lately be sure and say Hi:)

Along with my Paint Happy challenges I am enjoying playing along with the Art to the 5th girls and the Documented Life Project. What I REALLY love is my Dylusions art journal and ANYTHING Dina Wakely!!

This afternoon has been nice...just catching up on some friend's blogs...what inspiration I draw from each of them. Not only with my art but by how they live their lives! Jodene Shaw is one of the most beautiful souls out there. We have never met but one day I hope to not only sit and visit with her face to face but create!! Here is a fantastic post on being creative!!

My friend Leanne's blog post on living her dream is perfect for those of us that struggle with trying to live your creative dreams and have a job, family, etc. Check it out..."From Chaos Comes Happiness".

I am realizing that my very favorite art is messy. I am not an artist that likes clean lines and dark colors...I used to try and change that about myself...why?? I honestly don't know. Just trying to be the perfect artist I guess...why do we do that to ourselves??

My goal canvas for this year
I say create! Create what speaks to you. Tell YOUR Truth...speak your Heart!

What's holding you back??


  1. I love to watch your evolve through the years - to see your style change and grow. Love the photos in this post, my friend. I am trying to get myself back into blogland - realized it is something I miss so very much, and the only way to get back - is to DO it! Thanks for mentioning me, my friend. I adore you!!

    1. And I adore you!! Cannot WAIT to be sipping a Starbucks coffee with you and giggling and just chatting face to face!!!!!


I appreciate your thoughts and ideas...they inspire me!! I will be visiting you soon. Have a CREATIVE day!!
