Have you ever lost yourself? I mean like in a completely forgot who you are type way because your family is still struggling to figure out life without a loved one only to be followed by a two month long (and counting) struggle with your breast health and you have, like, fought the good fight to "keep it together" only to wake up, wide awake, at 2:30AM, and realize you've completely lost who you are?
Yeah me too.
Until I ran across this link and I remembered.
So today I dug out these sweet little canvases and brought them with me to play with on my lunch break. Aren't they just precious!
Only when I opened my art box I realized that I had removed all the acrylic paints and put them in another location. Um...Somewhere. I'm sure I will find them... one day. See that big empty section in the middle? That big empty section where my acrylics are supposed to be? As it turns out though (thank you google) watercolors can be used on canvas.
And cameraphones can be used at work.
And artists can misspell.
I SO misspelled this Haitian proverb meaning "Little by little the bird builds its nest".
Soon to be available in the in my Art for Haiti collection.
After I fix it that is.
I think I will end today's post with a quote that I pulled from Pitter Patter Art.
(Thank you Laura. Just paying it forward)
When your burden is heaviest, you can always lighten a little some other burden. At the times when you cannot see God, there is still open to you this sacred possibility, to show God; for it is the love and kindness of human hearts through which the divine reality comes home to men, whether they name it or not. Let this thought, then, stay with you: there may be times when you cannot find help, but there is no time when you cannot give help. -George S. Merriam
