This time tomorrow we will be zooming through New Mexico in my new convertible Fiat and I am taking y’all with me! New Mexico is the ultimate place of enchantment for me and I always keep a small pad of paper with me to write down the many creative ideas I get while I am there. Many ideas for writings and paintings come from that beautiful state.
My work is being shown at the Denver Indian Center September 17-18 at the White Stallion Fine Arts and Craft Fair and I wanted to get a few pieces out before that. I am not the best artist but I do love getting an idea onto paper.
When my children were growing up we did a lot of art. I taught them that you cannot mess up art. Art and ideas have their own entities and will come out just as they please. You can imagine how a painting will come out but then it will come out not at all as you expect because you are just the transport for the creation. It is a wonderful thing to help things become created.
I encourage you to create this week. This world is more beautiful when art is expressed and created. Do you have a poem you can write down? It doesn’t have to rhyme. Do you have a story idea? A pencil drawing or watercolor? A full painting? A song? A drum rhythm? A display of leaves and wildflowers? A novel? Create my friends! Feel free to post your beautiful creations in the comments.
Have a beautiful, creative day and I’ll see you in Socorro!
