Painting on Friday Night!

It's Paint Party Friday! 
Buddy and I are over here painting tonight! I hadn't painted all week. It was killing me... and at the end of the day today my heart was just aching to create. I did a quick little meditation and the flood gates opened and my heart is singing over here! Yep! 

So often I hear friends or people I meet say... 
I wish I was creative...
I wish I knew how to paint or draw...
To you... the one who thinks they don't know how to draw... and wishes they could....
PLEASE! DO IT! PAINT! DRAW! Throw paint! You can dooooooooooooooooo it!! 
I promise! 
I do it all the time, and it's scary for me!
Don't worry about what anyone else will think! 
(You don't have to show anyone if you're not ready) Sometimes I'm afraid my skills aren't good enough but really it's not about how bad you think you are
It's about the process!
Art is so healing... for everyone, we are all artists!
Don't be afraid! 
My heart is just lit up like a Christmas Tree on December 24th!

I painted a flying heart and shining sun tonight.

These are my 2 wishes for you for this weekend...
Love and Shining light!
Hugs to all the brave PPF artists sharing their work! You are all amazing!
