I love to look at the sky. I love to look at clouds. So this week when I got to my art class and the lesson was on the sky and clouds I was one happy painter. I've decided that for the month of May I will paint at least one picture a day of clouds. It may be something very small and it definitely will not have to be perfect but I think it will be fun to see what happens after a month of concentrating on one subject.
Each Friday it is my practice to write something about what I am grateful for experiencing during the week. This has been one of those weeks that would be easy to forget. It's been very normal. Things have gone just as they should - the weather has been nice, I've met with friends, I've had time to paint and life has been good. It is just the type of week in times past that I might have taken for granted and never even though twice about. But since starting this gratitude practice, I've learned how important it is to notice the simple things - the hot cup of tea in the morning, the flower that continues to bloom against all odds. the one special stroke on a painting that turns ok into great. The more I notice the simple things, the more I have to be grateful for. The more I have to be grateful for, the more simple things I notice. So this week I am very grateful for the simple things that make life special. Is there something simple but special that you are grateful for this week?
Each Friday I link my post to Paint Party Friday and Creative Every Day. Both are wonderful inspiring blogs to visit.
