Last week I was lucky enough to be on an art retreat with nine very talented artists. We stayed at a beautiful location in Maine and saw so many incredible and inspiring sights. We painted, we talked, we visited art galleries and museums and it was a wonderful and exciting week.
Normally, on Friday I link to Paint Party Friday but last week I wasn't home so I didn't write my normal blog post. But that didn't stop me from visiting and much to my surprise and elation I was the featured artist. I shared my excitement with all of the other ladies who were so supportive and happy for me. I want to thank Eva and Kristin for this great honor and I would also like to thank all of the artists at Paint Party Friday for their encouragement over the years. It was so hard to show my work at first but now because of your kind comments it gets easier each week.
No matter what we do in life things are easier if we have support. Support comes in all shapes and sizes. Sometimes it is family members and friends who we have known us for a long time. Sometimes it can come from a teacher or a coach or from people we have never met in person but with whom we share a common interest. No matter how it comes, it is special.
Where do you get your support? How do you give support? Those are two important questions to ponder. Most of the time when I offer support I learn so much in return. So once again I would like to thank all of the wonderful artists at Paint Party Friday for their kind comments and their wonderful support. I am so glad that I met you!
When you share your gifts and your talent with the world, magic happens. Let the magic begin!
