The plan: A wonderful holiday piece of art to let everyone know how much I have appreciated their comments, community, and creativity during the year.
Reality: I spent way too long running errands, a little time wrapping gifts, and spent the bulk of the afternoon visiting with my great aunt. I was so tired and worn out that my inner critic was running full steam ahead and I had little energy to combat her. Does anyone else feel that way this close to Christmas?
The solution: Intuitive painting for Paint Party Friday. I’m new to it, but I think I’m hooked. I just let the paint wash away the stress and my mind focused on the joys around me. After I finished with the paint I stepped back and saw fish- so a few quick white lines and I had fish. It isn’t holiday themed. It isn’t perfect. It is just what I needed. I wish you a happy, safe, healthy, relaxing, love-filled holiday!
