Words Matter

Words have the power to build up or tear down. They can crush a dream or open the remotest of possibilities. They warrant great care and intention.

I had a give-away of this painting over the weekend. I love to give my art away!

Here's what I posted on my facebook page...and then I randomly drew a name of someone who commented:

Celebration give-away!!!

I'm feeling so fortunate to be at a point in my life where I have amazing and incredibly fulfilling friendships. A few days ago I found myself reflecting on periods of my life when this was not the, so, so not the case. Thinking of those times is the gift of wonderful perspective.
I started this piece by writing words that represent a beautiful life (and, yes, "messy" is can we possibly learn if life is never messy, right?). Then I did splashes of color and a quick sketch. This is a big piece on 30"x22.5" on watercolor paper and I've titled it "Words Matter".
