The second part of my quest has been to read books that I have not been able to read with my past traveling schedule so I am engrossed in one this week suggested by my dear friend Susanne. The book is entitled A Million Little Ways by Emily Freeman. The secondary title is "uncover the art you were made to live". The book is so inspiring and not only to artists who paint or sing or dance but it inspires everyone to find the "art" in them - to consider our deeper desires - those things that make us come alive. One of the quotes at the beginning of chapter one is by Seth Godin and says, "Art is when we do work that matters in a creative way, in a way that touches (people) and changes them for the better." I love that and hope in some small way my art (which happens to be painting) does that.
Below are two of the paintings I did this week:
