Hi...I'm on a new adventure and a couple weeks ago the words, this art that heals was laid on my heart and I didn't pay much attention to it. The other day I was thinking more about it and wondering what to do with it, etc. I kept asking the Lord what does it mean. Tonight in my quiet time, the Lord showed me, it's about me finding a new purpose, letting things go that try to hold me back, standing up to my fears, holding onto my joy and peace, standing strong and embracing the artist that is within me and allowing the woman I am becoming to hold her head high. A big part is also, my children are nineteen and fourteen, being a momma is all I've ever known and been. I'm still a momma and it's still my purpose but in a different way now. They are off creating their own lives as it should be and they don't "need" me as they once did. There are nights I cry wondering what am I to do with me once the "baby" has left the nest. I am holding the Lord's hand as He guides my steps into this new journey.
I was in my art room looking around at the things I've done and how far I've come in my art, which I've come a long way, haha! My art lifts me up and brings me to a brighter place. So, I got to thinking, how nice it would be to share the journey with other ladies. Surely there are other ladies out there facing things in their lives who want to share their art and talk about it. I don't have any art group meetings with others where we just hang out, chat and do art. This is the next best thing.
I am planning to have a Wall Art Wednesday project where I post a scripture, special word or quote and we create our art around that piece.
I also want to do, Dose of Inspiration videos where I am making a piece of art using different styles, etc. in hopes that it inspires you in some way.
With my art I don't go by themes, rules, challenges or anything, I just sit down and allow whatever wants to step out and be made, be made. The best part is how relaxing it all is.
I hope that you join me on this new adventure in the healing beauty of creating art.
Have a great day!
