daily painting | my freak flag

I am newly devoted to having more time in my studio painting large abstracts. Yesterday I pulled out an old watercolor abstract on paper and worked back into it with crayon, ink, acrylics. It was cathartic and therapeutic as I bounce across life’s bumps. Art heals—go out and do it! Create, whatever your media — teaching, gardening, drawing, counseling, singing, inventing, making furniture. I sincerely commit to begin this decade with hope and an open heart. Someone recently said, “How the tables turn when the heart is open.” It’s risky and scary. Cynicism and self-protection is much safer. But magic happens when one’s heart is courageously open to live life in full color.
