P.S.

P.S. I made seven pieces to show
seven, in three days time
it felt so good too
on the inside
why did I wait so long?
this is part of me
time to set it free
and create with abandon
because I can
because I was made to
by Him
that is enough of a reason
The Reason
to make art
message received
lesson nearly learned
takes me a few times
of getting conked on the head
to get it
completely
and set my eyes on Him
and be the woman
He made me to be
I am an artist
I’m still learning to say it aloud
today’s the day I do just that


The sign I made for the front and back doors, announcing that I am The Artist In The House, at Uptown Gifts & Accessories, for Art Day, in uptown Normal, Illinois on on December 14, 2011.


"Mount of Olives"
watercolor and cut paper collage

December 2011

On a note attached to the art I wrote, "This is the third in a series of Olive Art I've made this fall. I Love Art. (Get it?) I Love the Lord too."

"P.S." was first posted at Tumblr, on the morning of December 14, 2011
