Give it a try

In March, the month of exuberance, I am working on convincing myself that
I can do whatever I work on doing. It has been a hard year for everyone, and
that includes artists. Still I am so inspired by my friends and artists I see on
Instagram, Facebook, and the blog world, so I want to try new things.

Today I gave abstract art a whirl. I greatly admire the work of Georgia Fullerton,
and Janet Vanderhoof. So I thought why not? The results are nothing stupendous,
but I’m so happy I tried. And it was so much fun playing with colour and a new
way of thinking.

Wishing you a day when you feel brave, confident, happy, and well. Please stay
safe, get the vaccine if you can, and enjoy whatever you do.

Have an enjoying whatever you do day.

Beautiful colour combinations. I like your comment about doing whatever you are working on doing. With social media one gets the idea of pleasing too many people.
Thank you too for the links to inspirational people. ;)

You are so welcome. Thank you. I have to work from my iPad now, because my computer fell!
But I’ll figure it out. They are inspiring people! And so are you!
