I Want To Paint
Yesterday on Facebook, a teacher friend of mine posted this wonderful photo of paint tubes with bright primary colors squishing out like toothpaste. Although the message was to have a colorful day, I commented that it made me want to play with paints. :-) Seeing that luscious paint brought back fond memories of grade school activities with finger-paints and tempera paints. I would readily admit that my artistic talents were limited then and haven't improved any over the years, but I can paint a great stickman or square house, and I'm an expert when it comes to drawing barren winter trees too! :-)
I started thinking how fun it would be to set out craft tables at everyone's place of work on Friday afternoons. Supply a bunch of paper and art supplies and let everybody just have fun with it. We could even hang our "artwork" along the walls, and you know it would make visitors smile!
I believe that everyone has a spark of creativity within, whether it be drawing or painting, making music or writing, doing embroidery or needlework, growing beautiful gardens, decorating a house or piecing together a quilt, building something out of wood, creating a fabulous dessert, or tying fishing lures. What's your favorite way to express your creativity? When was the last time you took time to play?
