Art of joy

As a  creative, there is always the need to make something and if your not doing, making, creating what you love you can feel lost. Well for me that is how I felt during the past three years. It started out well, I was happy to have a new job, experiencing new people but eventually the work just wasn’t for me anymore. I needed to make a change for my own well being and purpose. Over the course of my work days, I realized the work was boring, non-stimulating it was dulling my senses, kinda sucking the life from my soul (dramatic I know but its how I felt).

Taking time to contemplate my situation, realizing my life goals I decided to take a leap of faith.  Now my goal is to go full throttle with my art and work with anything that promotes my creative and brings me joy. These days I am feeling happier and lighter in spirit which is carrying over into the art I create. I always had a love of watercolor, and recently have been working on small paintings on paper, inspired by nature.

I want to share a little joy with you. Because I enjoy giving and sharing my work, I am offering a giveaway this week. I am selecting three winners BUT the winners will have to gift the art away. (No spamming, or mailings etc.) You can visit my artist page on Facebook, like the giveaway post and comment with the name of person you would like to give art to if you won. (no tagging or sharing required) Just a little giveaway…  You can just stop by say hello if you don’t wish to participate.. Thank you for taking the time to read my posts and view my art!!
