Creativity...you have to let it flow.

I have learned that when creativity is flowing, get in the boat and enjoy the ride. I have been writing, playing my guitar and painting.

I took pictures of my granddogs (my daughter's dogs) and painted portraits of them to give to her as gifts. I really enjoyed painting again and I have one more to do. I thought I would share the first two paintings. I posted the actual picture and followed it with a picture of the painting.



This is Lizzy. She passed away just before Christmas, which inspired me to paint a picture of her. She was a sweet, old dog that loved everybody.


This is the painting of Lizzy.



This is Lucy, my youngest granddog. When she was a pup, we called her the "there ain't no bugs on me" dog. What a fun spirit she has.


Here is the painting I made of Lucy.


Here is a picture of Lucy and Libby. They are so much fun!!

And here is my painting of Libby. I just finished her today.

So, whatever form of creativity you are in, enjoy it and ride it until it runs out of gas.


Peace and joy to all,

Phil

Quote of the year...

“Be not the judges of men, but love your brothers and sisters, and find ways to reach out to them in common goals and aspirations. Where there is love in common, the divisions of creed will melt away and reveal the true nature of man’s eternal destiny -- one of unity in purpose, to be perfect as the Father is perfect."
