Art Fortifies Me!

This is midway through Sheri Gaynor's Class on her book Creative Awakenings
Here's the link to buy it at Amazon.
I highly recommend this great art book. It is deliciously full of inspiration and recipes to motivate you. I have been working on many levels of my art drive.
Passion, dedication, intention, vision and soul
searching. It really is "Tilling the Soil (Soul!)" to quote Sheri from her book.
I worked on my journal art using my affirmation: ART FORTIFIES ME AND ALLOWS ME TO GROW. Above is my collage that I just finished this morning. I love the strength of the elephant
and it's intentional gait.. purpose-full! I have always firmly believed in persaverance. My spirit the blackbird soaring overhead carrying the gift of promise and hope. And here I am - Queen on top blooming with a burst of color and passion.
When I am in my art zone, I feel on top of the world. Art really is a foundation for me in my life.
It is the closet to God I feel when my hands and heart are creating, my color therapy for life.
I am always amazed how I can take my frustrations, worries, joys, celebrations, gratitude and
much, much more and allow art to clarify and/or glorify things for me. It is the journey not the destination.
So onward and upward..
