I read an article and got inspired.

1948180_10152141761378025_1457480227_nIra Glass says the key to success is plain old hard work. Keep working, don’t think too much about it. FINISH!  And I’ve always wanted to be able to draw or paint and I know I’m not good at it – YET. So I sat down despite all the “work” I have to do (lesson plans, consulting work, a short story I want to finish) and I made art. It barely looks like opal. When I showed it to Josie, she said, “Um, I like the colors.” Ava hugged me because the criticism stung so badly.

But I shall persevere.

  1. “Good” art is in the eye of the beholder. As for me, I like your picture of Opal. If creating art gives you a sense of peace, of personal expression, of happiness, what could be better?


    1. Thank you Jo-Anne! You are so sweet and you are completely right: who cares what others think? It relaxes me to do work on this. 🙂 Hope you had a fantastic spring break!


    1. Howard,
