A Wonderful Surprise!
Today in my email I received this amazing altered art piece from Faye--I was so surprised. It is so beautiful and I was so deeply touched by her kindness AND talent!
Faye doesn't know it but she has always been an inspiration to me ever since I came on the internet showing my art in the past year. We would often enter different challenges and I loved her work and couldn't wait to talk to her. Why? Because she is so real.
Now for any of you who do not do artwork, let me just say that sharing art on a blog can be very intimidating. Sometimes, I'd create a piece of art I was so excited about, share it and then think, "What did I do that for?" lol And there were some artists who were totally amazing and would give such kind feedback...you've met some of them on here on this blog before because their art is great, but in addition, they are wonderful human beings. I always knew when I had met a kindred spirit.
So, I should tell you that I began this blog as a way to ask people if they needed a prayer...that was it! I had no idea that I would meet such wonderful people (like those of you reading this) and also be able to feature the work of artists that I admire not only for their work, but also for who they are as human beings.
What is my point today? It is that it's great if we just do what we do because we love it and we never know what will come about as a result. And we never know what wonderful surprises will come along on our way down that path of happiness.
