I'm not a great artist, but who's to say what makes a piece of art great, anyway? There are few things in this world more subjective than art, be it in the form of a painting, a sculpture, a film, or a song. If you're not creating art because you're afraid of failing, then you're not creating it for all the wrong reasons. There is no failing in art; the only failure would be if you failed to create anything at all.
Today, I had the chance to paint. I love to paint. I don't do it often, maybe because supplies are so expensive, but those were supplied today by Unity Temple (my church), and so I took full advantage of their generosity and got to work.
|I would advise against painting in church clothes, if at all possible.|
|I think I'll call it "Ant Shelter".|
The Kid and The Hubby made a little art of their own, and even my mom, who was visiting from out of town, got in on the action:
|(L) Thunderstorm, by The Kid , (R) Eye by The Hubby|
|The Hubby cut it out, The Kid painted it.|
|Mom's work. I like it!|
Writing is great, but it's wonderful to use my hands for something other than typing every once in a while. I almost forgot what it was like, but now I've got paint on the brain and art in my heart. Stay tuned. :)
