The challenge this week of CONNECTION from INSPIRE ME THURSDAY brought my hand to mind!
I am creating every day with my hands...I love to feel the inspiration flowing from my soul outward through my hands...So this is my right hand...the hand that my creativity flows from....This is the hand that picks up the brush to paint...This is the hand that allows the pen to flow across the paper. This is the hand that does the work that my soul puts forth...This is my right hand...My connection to my connection to my connection to ME!! (and my connection to YOU!)
Artfully yours,

WOOD!!!!! Well this is part of the art that I do for a living!! I paint furniture! Selling it in galleries and stores...So the piece I did for my 4 by 4 for this inspirational prompt has a funky wooden door with another door within it!! I came across this quote and so LOVED it that it prompted this picture. I am also, actually showing you some of the furniture pieces and an installation piece that I did for a one woman show...I love painting on wood, but it doesn't fit the 4 by 4 that I have committed to for this site!! LOL...ENJOY!
Artfully Yours,

World Traveler

When I first saw this prompt...I was LOST! And after looking within I discovered that my answer for myself with WORLD TRAVELER was.."There is no place like home"... Clicking my ruby red shoes 3 times!! Now, it is not because I don't like to travel...Because I certainly do, but because when the trips are over it is always such a wonderful thing to come HOME. Home where my heart is ... Home where my family is... Home where my art supplies are... Home, where love abounds. So no matter where my travels may take me, for me the world that I know and feel the most comfort and love for is HOME.... HOME SWEET HOME!
Artfully Yours,

This is my first piece for Inspiration Thursday...The challenge was ROOTS...
This is an Easter picture of me at the age of 4...I remember it quite clearly as
I received from the BUNNY in my basket wonderful crayons, and markers along with a
coloring book and construction paper...scissors...all that art stuff!! Anyhow, I had
to wait till after church to be able to play, but you can see that I am one happy girl!!
So ROOTS....MY ROOTS ARE FIRMLY PLANTED IN COLOR!!!...They have been since that early age..
It did not matter that the cat was yellow or the leaves were purple...all that really mattered was that I used all the colors on every single page!! I still do that....I love color...It just makes me happy! This piece which is now the very first is 4 by 4 inches and done with acrylic paint and a copy of a photo...and a couple stickers....
