I want her to know! Paint Party Friday

Paint Party Friday
Art Journal Journey
What I want Cupcake to know that I didn't learn 
until later in life is that you can create any lifestyle 
you want and attract those like minded people to you.
Mandarin Orange Monday
In her  late twenties I want her to know that everyone has a
 great gift! I want her to understand  the importance of heeding
 your calling, so you can  understand the true joy of life!
This is my original painting! See all the digital fun I  had below!
I want Cupcake to understand that our gifts won't 
necessarily parallel others.That they can be  simple
 quiet gifts or a loud boisterous callings. No matter what, 
they will be suited to our individual  style. They
 will define  our essence!
Most people feel comfortable the moment they enter 
our whimsical colorful house. It's a beautiful loving place, 
where many people have divulged secrets they could share 
no where else. Even though it can be difficult to carry those 
secrets it's an honour that people
 feel safe here.
It's a place of safety. Of love and understanding. We 
aren't athletes, or fitness junkies. We're not fastidious 
about keeping our home perfect every moment!
 We tend to let things go too long. We have very lazy days. 
However, we cook well, we laugh lots and we talk about
 world issues and care about human beings!
 Even though we can all be very fun in social situations
 we  are all creative introverts. I used to think I was
 eccentric with my love of color.I have adjusted that
 thinking to  following my true nature as an artist,
 or woman who likes to create!
Deep in the Forest
Not everyone can cook well. Goodness knows I'm 
not a conventional artist who can draw everything I see.
 I am a woman who as a little girl awoke every morning
 wanting to color! I am the young girl who spent her
 allowance on a pair of sunglasses that had several
 different colored lenses she could alternate.
I am a young teen who wore patterned nylons that nearly 
drove her mum around the bend! I'm a young adult who 
painted every room in her home a cohesive bold color!
 I'm the  thirty five year old who wore big colorful bows 
made out of scarves in her hair.Now I am a lady in
 black with a colorful patterned cane who finally
 knows who she is!
I used to take my gifts for granted thinking everyone could 
cook, write, or share wisdom or budget like I could! 
Attached to that kind of thought was judgement!
 Thankfully I came to the realization that not everyone
 shares the same gifts! 

 I have an adventurous friend who  introduces you to
 places and things you'd never imagine.I have
 another who remembers ever single date and event in
 sequence, she's like a memory machine with an amazing 
sense of humour! Another friend  can always find
an interesting wise solution to any difficult problem.
 Dreamer that's you!
I have a friend who is a sounding board and no matter 
what you tell her she's judgement free and helpful. I have 
one who is a creative champion and inspires everyone 
in her midst to create something! Cupcakes mother 
in law who has ten children is a baby whisperer 
who can calm the most discontented baby or toddler. 
Life is more exciting and full when we amalgamate
 all our gifts and share with the world those special
 things only we can do!  I have changed perspectives 
with my gifts and others have changed me with theirs!

What are some of your unique gifts  you take for granted?

Happy Thanksgiving to all my Canadian friends!!

I love Sue Kreitzmans story and Art Attitude! 
She's a pretty dynamic! 
An interesting character for sure!
I have ALWAYS,  wanted an Art coat like hers!

Wonderful post today! Your art is full of colour, wonderful! I too would love her art coat. Umm, One of my gifts is being a good listener and seeing beyond the obvious.
Happy Canada Day to you.

Netty said...

Love your post and your art Giggles. I think we are all special in our own way and as the years go on we discover more about ourselves. Am happy in my skin, but its taken a while to feel that way.
Happy PPF, Annette x

Always a theme to ponder on your amazing blog, Sherrie. Your digital changes are beautiful. Love the original and the great colors.

Faye said...

For some reason, I don't think the first comment made it through. Just wanted to say that I always look forward to your post on PPF. You always give us something worthwhile to ponder while showing us your colorful art with all the beautiful variations.

denthe said...

Wonderful fun characters again this week, and it sure shows you had fun with digital altering :-) I find it fascinating to discover how different people are good in different things. And how they often don't realize that it's a gift ...

sheila 77 said...

Colour, lazy days, good cooking and laughter? - I'm flying over now!
Apart from Twitchy, your ladies look pensive today, but I love them both - and Twitchy of course.
I really like your leaves and the creative way you have made patterns with them.

Neesie said...

I always love to visit your place Giggles because not only do you have a feast for the eyes with your vibrant, beautifully colourful creations but also your wise words.
The leaf designs are exquisite.
Thanks for sharing and inspiring.
Happy PPF to you xoxo

Neesie said...

Oops forgot to say
Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours xoxo

What an empowering post!! I love the description of your view of the wired through colour changing lenses...I feel empowered to go do some painting now...even tho it is half ten in the evening!!!

Arnoldo L. Romero, MLA said...

I really try to embrace all my God given gifts and share them with the world… especially with my students. I also enjoy helping others find and embrace their own gifts. I thoroughly enjoyed learning about Sue in her video, because I found her very inspirational. Thanks for your words of encouragement on my blog. Blessings, my friend!

Helen Campbell said...

Great post to remind us of our unique gifts! Wonderful artwork!

Debbie said...

I really love your paintings today, the leaves are my favorite!
It took me 48 years to realize i was an artist, and another 5 to start calling myself one. Isn't life strange and wonderful at the same time?

Lynn Richards said...

Great artwork and what a fabulous topic you have covered!

My name is Erika. said...

You are a very lucky lady to not only have a great daughter and son-in-law, but to have a colorful house and such amazing friends. I hope your daughter listens to you too because you sound like you have lot of very good wisdom to share. Love your ladies this week too!

Tracey Fletcher King said...

home is a place where I can make stuff, bake stuff and a place where friends are welcome..its not a tidy place but then who want to live in a show house but in a home where family feel safe and comfortable watching the autumn rain outside off to check that art video out thanks for sharing

Jo said...

Love your post as always. Love the colors and the fun you had with the digital altering. I would agree with you that a happy, loving, creative, safe house is much more important than an always clean one.

Phoenix Peacock said...

Fantastic message! Love the characters too

Sirkka said...

Thanks for sharing your thoughts and art! I am wordless. I love your colorful art and your shared thaughts:) I wish you all good !

Teresa Arsenault said...

Beautiful art and wisdom. I am determined to starve my comparison monster to death, though it does try to rear its ugly head quite regularly.

Blessing hugs,

Lisa Isabella Russo said...

Love the witch! You do have such a creative eye for color and such a kindness in your heart. I enjoy your posts!

Pia Rom said...

Aweeeee, no fair! How can I comment first on your beautifully bold and colorful art and art patterns, when your writing is making me tear up! I LOVE your posts, each and every one makes me think, and I can only imagine having a wonderful time in your home too. Thank you for sharing your spirit with us, I wonder how many people are comforted by it. LOVE your little girl in her chunky sweater too ;) xoxo

Bronson Hill Arts said...

Happy Thanksgiving to you Sherrie. You have a wonderful talent for writing too. It also reminds me of poetry as your words have a rhythmic pattern to them-:)

Wonderful advice. The art is beautifully connected to the story. I love the video. I always wanted to grow into my 'own' as she did. Blessings, Janet PPF
