During 2020, many of us have had time to pause, reflect on what we’re doing (and not doing), and make different choices.
Like me, you may find your deepest self-expression in art, whether or not you’re ready to describe yourself as an “artist.”
Suddenly, creativity is emerging from our hearts and our souls. That artistic voice is announcing to ourselves – and perhaps the world – who we are.
With something to say.
We’re saying that in our art journaling, scrapbooking, drawing and painting, decorating, and more.
We’re using pencils, paint, paper, canvas and cloth, digital resources, and “found art” items.
We’re coloring, reorganizing, and redecorating.
We’re simplifying. Focusing on what brings us joy.
We’re creating journals, wearables, objects d’art, and… well, lots of things we don’t have words for. Not yet, anyway.
This is about US… who we are, inside. The things we want (or need) to say.
And this is tremendously healthy.
Our future is ART!
