Painting at The Hope Center -the final coat of paint

The last two painting sessions were a lot of fun as the participants added letters and words into their image.

Adding text to an image can aid the artist and viewer in interpreting the expression of the painting.

Adding masking tape to cover what you want to save and deleting what needs to be covered is the next step.

Working in community aids the process and encourages the creative process.

An artist is not paid for his labor but for his vision. -James Whistler

Creativity is allowing yourself to make mistakes. Art is knowing which ones to keep. -Scott Adams

Art and the creative process allows us to make sense of the world around us as we seek to form an expression of what we experience.
Every human is an artist. The dream of your life is to make beautiful art. -Miguel Angel Ruiz
As we join together in this dance of life creativity is the song we learn to sing together.
Joining together in the creative process allows hope to be passed along to those who do not fully understand its meaning.
I challenge you to share the creativity with those around you…instilling hope for our future.  These paintings will be auctioned off at the Hope Center Auction.  I hope you can support this effort in some way!
