My Love of Art - Blog Hop

These past two years my life has changed in a lot of ways and art has contributed to it most of all because I finally started doing things that are good for my soul, namely creating.  I decided to make this "For the Love of Art" Fly Tribe blog hop post really simple--sort of a "thank you" to art and the reasons I love her so (sorry if that sounds a bit corny!).


I love art because...
  • it makes me feel so damn happy!
  • it makes me forget about anything else going on around me (sometimes even eating or picking up my daughter from school at a certain time--oops!)
  • I get to work with and see originality and beauty -- what's better than that?
  • it has helped make some new creative friends who finally understand my love and NEED of creating
  • I believe it has helped my health immensely, namely putting my kidney disease in remission
  • it has also introduced me to some amazing online artists who have shared their lives, inspirations and techniques with me so generously

I hope you'll be able to hop around and visit a few of the other blogs participating in this hop.  You will be inspired for sure. I hope you have a great Valentine's Day and are able to share your love with someone special. Thank you for visiting me today!  If you have a love of art too, I'd love to hear what it has done for you.
