#10 Grow Where you are Planted

Grow where you are Planted...the grass is not always greener....Make get the idea.

Autumn's Prompt for this week is "Growing" and I went with Grow Where Planted because it explains how lucky I am to live in a secluded wonderland that is truely condusive to being creative. Inspiration is everywhere. My 'location, location, location' is full of Nature and History, two of my favorite things, plus it is in the heart of cowboy country.

#9 Stand By Me...or not

Autumn's Prompt for this week is "Standing Beside Me".
How does this relate to my art revival?? Well, I could have related this prompt to the people in my life who support and encourage me.....but, I didn't. The word 'STAND' is a powerful word. There are a ton of ways that it can be used. Stand up, stand for, stand out, make a stand....the list goes on.

Today, things are changing all around us. The Economy, the face of Politics and the stability of life as we have known it. In times of change, art is the one 'Pleasure' that is constant. If I never replenished or purchased another art supply from this point forward, or if everything I owned was removed, I could still find a way to be creative. It is is my steady footing so I can roll with any punches the future has in store.

Art is my Constant
Art is my Stable Skill
Art is Comfortable & Pleasurable
Art is a Coping Device
Art is my Voice
Art is Logical.

No matter life's condition, I have my creative spirit, it Stands beside me.
