ART ON THE CHEAP OR WASTE NOT WANT NOT.

Standard
Today it is stormy, cold, wet and windy and today, of all days I was compelled to create. I lost my art room to support the remodeling cause so I gathered my supplies and set up camp in our gazeboimage

My canvas is a large board picked up from the wood scrap pile at Home Depot. I discovered, much to my delight, that Home Depot sells 2 quart containers of paint for 2 bucks each. I bought 13 in assorted colors then dropped in to the Michaels store with a 50% off coupon which I used to buy a cool Martha Stewart set of letters to decoupage. Iā€™ m not gifted in making up art out of my head but I can do a fair to half baked copy of what I see so I tried my hand at my favorite book by Nancy Tillman, WHEREVER YOU ARE MY LOVE WILL FIND YOU. I stenciled words Sing Dance Rejoice because I want to blend the spirit of Thanksgiving and Christmas. Then as a final touch I tried to splatter white to create the starry effect Nancy added to her book cover and to my horror I totally goofed and big runny gobs of white paint were dripping down everywhere. O NO!!! I groaned in shocked disbelief. Then determining not to put another ounce of energy into my masterpiece gone wrong I turned the dance under the moon into a dance in the sprinklers under the moon. What do you think? Is it worth saving?

    • šŸ‘šŸ˜€. I can identify with looking forward to getting the holidays behind us and getting on with life. The holidays can be very stressful, emotionally draining, a punch to the pocketbook, and lonely. Remembering family and friends that have passed on intensifies it all. Yet, isn’t this all what life and living is about? In all seasons of life God never changes. He never stops caring about the little and the big things in our lives. And He gets us through. Thankful!
