I Love Art Because...


... It's fun and it makes me happy.  (Simple, but true.)
... It's a great way to communicate when I don't have the words. (I've been doing this ever since I was little. I mentioned it before here.)
... It is a constant companion.  (No matter what else is going on in my life, I always have art.)
... It can be therapeutic.
... It brings people together.  (I have met such an amazing community of creative friends online.)
... Making messes can be magical.
... It inspires.
... It comes in many forms: paint, clay, fabric, collage, song, dance, food & sooo many more.
... Trash can become treasure.
... Seeing the creation of an idea from start to finish is very rewarding.
... The possibilities are endless!

  14. Beautiful work. Love the gorgeous colors. Happy PPF! (BTW, could you and Eva put out another plea for artist to avoid the word verification. Some blogs won't let me comment because I use a wordpress ID.
