Sparking and Savoring the Artful Life

100 Bad Paintings! so you had better get started!


Hiya!! My favorite art teacher once told me that anything you are interested in will blossom if given a little time. Just because you are not a master at first, doesn’t mean you shouldn’t do it and enjoy it! In fact, it is supposed to look a little “off” at first, so relax and have fun with the process.
(my iffy video skills are a great example) 🙂

There is nothing better than learning and the gift of watching a new, wonderful thing unfold.
The creative act itself is just another way that art enhances the world!

Move your hands, play a song, learn a dance, bake a cake, try a new painting technique!

Here’s to making stuff and enjoying your day!

with lots of love,

  1. As always, your positive words are encouraging. My new job is unfolding beautifully, but I really do miss my old boss ;-}

  2. Hello to you, my dear, snowy Pam!

    May I just say, that you are lovely in every way. To be the one to take care of all things while your mom isn’t well is remarkable and worthy and kind. I send you brownie points, kudos and extra bonus credits that you can turn in for small things that make you happy…….perhaps things such as hot chocolate or homemade cobblers or fresh peaches…… and I am sending warm wishes that everything will go smoothly on Monday for you and for your mom.
    Thank you from the bottom of my heart for taking the time to tell me such nice things. I was really touched and I appreciate your thoughtful words. And I LOVE the idea of a fireside chat with homemade chocolate cake, scones and tea!!
    Sounds fantastic!!
    sending LOVES!
