Thank you, thank you Dean Nimmer! I’ve been checking out Dean Nimmer’s book, Art From Intuition: Overcoming Your Fears and Obstacles To Making Art. I sure did need a break. I’ve been doing that thing that I think many people do – spending way too much time looking at other people’s art and way too little time exploring it for myself. Obviously, if you’ve read my posts before, you know that I am certainly NOT one who makes any kind of a living from what I paint. Some of you are now saying, “Yes, and it’s a good thing!” Ha. Anyway, I had forgotten why I love art so much – because it is FUN. Life, I think, like art is always a learning process. You stop growing, you may as well not get out of bed as far as I’m concerned. I love teaching, love learning new things, and pray I will never feel fully satisfied but will continue to look for ways to grow and improve in all areas of my life. A friend said, “When you stop being hungry, you’re dead.” On that note, here is my exercise in creative freedom. It was fun. I enjoyed the process this time and didn’t worry about the end result. I believe I’m going to do more of that. Life should be fun. It’s a gift. Hope it makes you smile today.
God’s blessings. And, thank you Dean.
