The Artist in All of Us

may cards

Today on Facebook, a local business, Bay Village Coffee, shared a FB post promoting my friend May Porter’s art in the form of holiday greeting cards.

I have to share with you that this post brought tears to my eyes. My friend May is a terrific artist and she is getting her work out there. I remembered back to a time when May was more of a silent artist, or perhaps a time when she was a little less confident about her gift.  And I thought of all of the artists out there. It matters not if the art is in the form of painting, drawing, sewing, writing, cooking, gardening, designing or just creating of any sort, it’s art! And how many of us struggle with letting it come out and through us?

This my friends, is why I had tears in my eyes. For all the Mays, the Maggies, the Susans and Joes of the world who struggle with allowing our art and our gifts out.  We all have beautiful divine expressions of creativity and gifts we have to offer the world and many of us keep them hidden.

I for one, have vowed to use my gift of expressing through words more often and to ‘let it out’ and this is why I am here writing today. 🙂

Here is a picture May posted today of her favorite work area in her home, her dining room table.

Others commented and posted sharing their favorite  areas to create too! So often we think we need special rooms, areas, or tools for our craft when in reality it’s just do it and the spaces and inspirations will find their place as we journey along.  It always begins with the first step…

I encourage the artist in you, to unleash its divine essence and flow through you and out to the world. We have been waiting for you!

I close with another piece of May’s art. The English Robin and prints are available for those interested.  And to see more of May’s work, she does have a FB Page . If you too love the artists of the world and also love supporting them, give her page a Like.

Dare to Dream

My friend May is an amazing artist who is starting to awaken to truly embracing her gift. Today she shared with me a poem she wrote while taking an art class through Tracy Verdugo’s Mojo E-Course.

Our conversation initiated from a post I made myself the other day that was “LIFE is the canvas. YOU are the artist.”

I hope you enjoy May’s poem and art as much as I do. Thank you May for inspiring all of us by awakening to your creative and divine self.  Namaste…..

Dare To Dream
Big bright beautiful dreams
Realizing that life is our canvas
We are artists each and everyone
Dare to draw, paint, sculpt, knit, sing, dance, bake or act
Be playful
Rummage through torn up scraps
From someone else’s masterpiece
Trust yourself May
Like the wise old owl
It’s a new beginning
OWN IT
Tell your story with a loaded paintbrush
Like the old masters before us
Van Gogh, Beatrix Potter, Walt Disney
A new understanding arises…. I love playful artists and vibrant colours
Breathing in gratitude breathing out doubt
I am ready to leave my mark.
