I stumbled on a quote that I really like and want to embrace, so i thought I'd share it with you...

This really appeals to the artist and composer in me. Maybe I'll paint this on the wall of my foyer. emoticon

    Update---July 27, 2013

I saw my friend today. She said that she loves getting up in the morning and looking at the door frame that we painted together. She said that it makes her feel like a kid on Christmas morning who can't wait to get up and open presents. emoticon

I'm so glad that I could help cheer her up. She has had a very tough year so far. It's good to see her smile and laugh again.

    I knew we were kindred spirits. I have an ocean scene with palm trees painted on the wall in my living room. I'll try to post a picture of it. Once I helped my granddaughter paint a volly ball net on her bedroom wall!
I love the rainbow colors.

    I'm not a "painter", so to speak. I just like to express myself sometimes with paint, beads, paper and glue, pencils and ink, in letters or other writings, in my clothing and home decor, in dance, yarn or other string, floral arrangements, or with a keyboard, playing along with music I hear on CDs (I play by ear)...whatever I can find to express the things in me that I can't express any other way.

I haven't had much of a desire to do it the last two years, though I have done a little bit. Now that I am starting to feel better and know that I just have to "prime the pump" by DOing one of these things, I find my desire to express myself artistically is returning.

Today, I plan to go to a friend's house and paint a vine of flowers around one of her door frames. It will cheer her up after a recent tragedy.
