So with tomorrow being thanksgiving, I thought I'd write a journal saying that the one thing I am very thankful for is my love for art. I may not be the most talented person out there but it makes me proud that I can fall into a piece of art and enjoy the idea of someone creating it. Also being able to create it myself. There is this whole world of art, I don't think everyone understands that. For some it helps us remember a time, forget, let go, create something new - a hope inside oneself. You all should at least feel something when looking at some art. It can bring out new or old feelings, even inspire you.
Of course I have other things in life to be thankful for, but art has really gotten me out of some hard times in my past. It has also helped me connect with people who I doubt I'd never connect with otherwise. For those of you who are seeing this for the 1st time on my page for the 1st time or for those who have watched and seen my art for years - thank you. I'm very happy and lucky to have lived my life with art and being able to go somewhere else when all else has failed me. A great escape. Hope you all have a wonderful thanksgiving, enjoy it!
