And so begins the practice…

March 6th, 2011 by Nikki Smith

The Practice by Lisa Wilson of LifeunityThis lovely painting, “The Practice” is by Lisa Wilson of Lifeunity.  This was her generous door prize in the One World One Heart blog event this year.  Lisa says:

“The Practice” is a reminder that every moment of our lives is another opportunity to practice – practice being open, mindful, and aware of everything that is going on (around us, our body, our thoughts, our breath).

I love  art that incorporates the written word — and what a great message this is!  Thank-you, Lisa!

P.S.  If you missed OWOH this year, don’t fret.  There will be a similar event next year geared specifically to artists who blog – Our World, Our Art!

Go Paint Something!

Go Paint Something!OK:  Total, unabashed, mommy brag-book moment…Go Paint Something!

My inspiring artist this week is none other than my daughter, Celeste.  Her delightful drawings grace my kitchen walls, windows, fridge and floors (in washable crayola).  And she does inspire me, each and every day.  Here’s to boundless curiosity, endless energy, experimentation and coloring outside the lines!

What are you still doing online?  Go make some art already!  And then drop by and share your inspired creations with me!
