Hey Peace Seeker!
Today is once again, gray and cold and rainy. I love the rain. I especially love the rain when I can stay home and work. I love my work. My work is my life as art is my life. I love art so much. I would still make art everyday even if I won the lottery.
Imagine that, I could buy the Sennelier oil pastels I covet. I could get the Van Gogh paints and best papers and I could get a big weaving loom! And work in a studio with a skylight and fireplace and floor to ceiling windows!!
I would have french doors that opened to a beautiful wildflower and herb garden and a big overstuffed chair for reading tucked into a nook for a good book. I would have bookshelves that went to the ceiling too and I would have one of those sliding ladders to reach the top.
I love art and apparently I love thinking about my dream studio even though I do love my studio now 😀
Hey, today is Wednesday. That means it’s Words of Wisdom day! How about some thoughts on art?!
Art, freedom and creativity will change society faster than politics. Victor Pinchuk
The purpose of art is washing the dust of daily life off our souls. Pablo Picasso
An artist is not paid for his labor but for his vision. James Whistler
What art offers is space – a certain breathing room for the spirit. John Updike
Art is the daughter of freedom. Friedrich Schiller
I could go on and on but I won’t. I’m chilling off now as the warmth generated by Ashtanga for two hours is wearing off and I need coffee! And food!
Have a beautiful artsy day and meet me back here tomorrow 😀
