Being Artsy

During the month of April, I joined the #artfulmemorieschallenge on Instagram after my friend Marilyn (and longtime Blogging pal as well) asked a few of us that used to post to Sepia Saturday if we'd like to play along and #sepiasaturdayalumni was created. We were given a daily prompt in April from either Jane Chipp or Jack Ravi authors of Artful Memories - How to create unique art with old photographs. I have to admit it was more than engaging, and I'm still enjoying being artsy.

I'm posting to City Daily Photo.

Creativity is Everything. 

Unleash yourself. 

In truth art in some form is all around us. Just open your eyes and see!

For Day 22 our prompt was, "Martin the blacksmith was born in 1929. They called him the master of fire." I created my image and added, "Even though he was a blacksmith by trade his heart belonged to being a firefighter."

 "Conform, go crazy, or become an artist."

Nancy Springer

"Just because you are soft doesn't mean you are not a force. Honey and wildfire are both the color gold."

Victoria Erickson

If you ask me why I desire to

 be (my own kind) of artist

 it's so I may be free 

to live out loud.

Take the risk or lose the chance.

For Day 19 our prompt was, "Pranjal loved waking at dawn and filling the farm with melodious chanting and warm prayers." I created my photo and added, May the beauty of nature fill your heart with peace and joy throughout the year.


_Alone all by myself, my imagination becomes my universe

and all that I feel flows throughout my thoughts

and that is my reward." K. Sather

You sculpt your future with your thoughts.

"Not all things that fall down break. Some develop wings. 

N. S. Chandra

Embrace You.

The practice of art isn't just about making a living

 it's to expand your soul.

Also, one of my Instagram posts.

"Leave people brighter, softer, freer, and lighter than when you found them."

Thank you for your visit and your comments.

Take good care of you and

if you so desire spread some art about your day.

Thank you (lots) for sharing your beautiful artsy self. I am an appreciator rather than a creator - and a very busy appreciator.

It is so good to get involved in a project like that. I like your pieces very much, Karen.

Being an artist sounds better than conforming or going crazy!
