14x18 original watercolor
When we become childlike in our approach to art and life, and let the critical part of our brain quiet, we open ourselves up to true beauty. Our minds begin to think more in pictures- in lines, shapes, colors and form. We begin to "play". Playing is at the heart of art. It is where we meet with that child within, and allow him or her to come out . When we are able to do this, it is one of the most freeing, loving things we can do for ourselves. Judgement floats away, creativity engulfs us, and we are able to do things we never thought possible. We surprise ourselves!
