Wow, I am happy to report that I have completed my sweet little puppy portrait:) A very sweet customer wanted her cutie pie doggies to get painted into a formal portrait. I will say, this was a very enjoyable painting to create. It also served as a terrific escape from my hectic life.
I have enjoyed working these past months so very much, and had forgotten just how important it was for me to remain creative. After the birth of my three children, I had let my creative side stray a bit, but am very happy that I have it back. The funny thing, I never realized just how important the process of making art was for me. I used to think it was the final result, but now I am all about the actual actions. Mentally, it has done wonders for my sense of self, and well as my internal happiness meter.
Go do something creative today, it will do wonders for you as well:)
