“Art doesn’t have to do anything. It just has to be there for the fierce pleasure we take in doing it.”
My gifting this past holiday season to those close to me in my life centered on sharing time together. The Christmas gift I gave to some dear, long time friends was an afternoon in my art studio. It was a 'mini' art workshop. I chose a date in March-far enough out that we could look forward to a relaxing, fun time during a somewhat bleak month. I printed a save the date 'invite', and gave that as the gift.
We had a great afternoon making art and memories together.
And, of course, talking about many memories we had made together over the years!
As a working artist/retired art educator, I've always lived the artful life. Let's share!
