dreaming, daring... draw

It is interesting how therapeutic expressing oneself through art can be. The flow of emotion to pen can sooth the mind while invigorating hope.

Thoughts circle our hearts while often getting tangled in its strings. I find that the easy flow of turmoil, joy, love and sadness find a more pleasing route through fingers... I am no Degas, but I do love the vulnerability of exposing the mind's eye on paper and pad.

This is a picture of Aslan adorned with a wreath of words describing the attributes of a benevolent king and gentle father... As I was meditating on these adjectives I soaked in the weight of their meaning and marinated in their goodness. Basking in the hope to be permeated by them and emit His likeness.

artistic expression

Being a creative person I am hoping to dive into the world of art and photography in order to have an outlet. An outlet to express my joy, sorrows, fears, and gratitude. I am enamored with the beauty that the Lord has created in this world... I would love to express the way that it makes me feel through unbridled artistic expression.
