Day 10 Joy

My joy today is the gratitude I feel for being an artistic person. There are so many people who go through life, just going through the motions of everyday existence with no creativity. And then there are a lot of people who wish they were artistic but think they can't be for some reason. (Which isn't true- anyone can do it!)

Having any form of art in one's life is a great gift- a lifetime journey of development, something that is your unique addition to the beauty of the world. Because there's so much crap everywhere, we need balance.

I can't wait to go out painting on Monday! :)

  2. Thanks Jess for sharing such wonderful words about being a artist..your right theres to much crap in the world and i think people are losing respect for the finer things in life! as Artists i think we see and feel alittle bit deeper then say, the people who dont take time to stop and smell the roses so to speak!
