Tuesday in the Studio

P8030001

Owed it to myself to have a much needed art day…

P8030003

  Owed it to some friends to complete some projects I had committed to…

I wanted and needed to have some ART LOVE flowing.

And I had a feeling that the best way to “Be OK” was to create the day away…

Cranked the tunes – even found a sound track !

Finally completed a prayer flag for a dear friend who is healing from surgery…

P8030007

I guess it is never too late to send some love, right ?

P8030008

Finished a Mail Sketch project that should have been passed on long ago…

Like months…

I am hoping that the extra effort I put in to jazz up the envelope P8030011

as well an added little giftie inside will help me be forgiven for my procrastination.

If not, that is okay too.

Time to let it go…

I have said for many many years that having a paint brush in my hand is the cheapest and most effective therapy there is for me.

P8030024

Using my creativity, losing myself in my art, finding ways to put my heart out into the world through what I create…

 P8030028

That is one way I know that I can always BE OK.

For me, Art is LOVE,

and

we all know, Beautiful Ones, that

Happy Tuesday !

Great post and I love your pics! The pieces you have completed are awesome.
I know how you feel about "commitments". Sometimes we just can't live up to them art wise and we feel so overwhelmed and bad about it. So "Be Ok" is a wonderful mantra! And you will be!!
