I've begun working on a new project in my art journal with a focus on gratitude. But...instead of just listing or painting what I'm most thankful for, I decided to paint an image for each letter of the alphabet. And of course, the letter 'A' had to be art. I'm totally thankful for the opportunity to paint, to be creative. There have been many times in my life where I've struggled and the process of creating has literally saved me, saved my sanity.
I'm interested to see what word and image comes up for me each week and how it will push me to try new things. And a palette was so fun to paint. Odd how I struggle when I'm trying to draw daily but when it comes to painting, I seem to want to paint everything, including the paint. Very interesting.
My daughter, Alex was a little incensed that she wasn't the first thing on my mind for the letter 'A', but I'm sure I'll get to her at some point ;)
