I’m so grateful to be teaching children the beauty of art. Art makes me feel like the world is mine and there are no impossibilities.
I’ve been decorating a classroom. It’s been taking over my days. But I can’t rememebr a time when I smiled so much! I had to remind myself of home and the non-art to-do list I have.
I should film the awesomeness we made. The children loved their art.It was a gift to see their faces light up with all the confidence in the world.. What a beautiful moment. Can’t I do this FOREVER. PLEASE.
I say yes. I am working on my next book and almost half-way done with the illustrations. YAY!
The interesting part of all this is that:
I’ve been working on my art.
Collage butterflies just have my heart.
But I messed up the hand lettering
Did I pin the watercolored leaves in conontrasting color, I’m doubting myself and it stings.
BUT I overheard them say,” Wow I love your color, you know what your doing.”
I’m and artist, they say. I know and it feels amazing!
I’m ready to finish my book.
I see them give my art a second look.
Yeah, it was meant to be.
It’s time to put your name on the cover.
That way we all can reunite with curiosity, there’s a whole world to discover!
I should take some pictures, perhaps a video.
Maybe turn this experience into a craft book, that would be neat-o!
