30 Words :: Art Feeds My Soul

Never realized
how I long to create.
Bringing forth
something from nothing is 
....open mind, heart....
...playful possibility...
embracing what moves me
to satisfy the
craving in
my soul.

This week's lesson in the Life Book 2015  was all about being an artful wordsmith, with the expert help of Joann Sharpe and her book The Art of Whimsical Lettering. If there was ever a lesson more perfectly geared toward me, I know it would be this! I have always been artful, and a bit of a wordsmith, so putting those things together and allowing myself the chance to follow the line where it leads was liberating! I am now making more and more of these artful wordsmith pieces... for framing, for an art exhibit... and just for me! So exciting to find a new love!
The premise of 30 Words Thursdays is simple...
Take an image (preferably one you shot, or have permission to use).
Write 30 Words about it. No more. No less.
Post it each Thursday.

Erin, your artwork is beautiful.I recognized the style right away because you are so skilled! Are you enjoying the workshop then? I was so tempted to take it myself but trying to save my pennies for a trip to Donna Downey's studio. Please post more! I want to see EVERYTHING you create!
