Photo Challenge: Today


TODAY  (June 2012)

How did I spend my afternoon TODAY?   Music and painting, it doesn’t get better than this.

“The essence of all art is to have pleasure in giving pleasure.”

-Mikhail Baryshnikov

    • Thanks, Hot Fix. Besides the art and music combo, what I loved the most about “TODAY” is the fact that my husband was just next to me while I was working on my art, and every time I would take a break, I could mess around with him. I would unplugged my headphones and we would dance to the music. 🙂

  1. I’d love to see the final look! Creative!

  2. Relaxing and creative – great combination!

    • Very well said, jdb57. I find playing with my watercolor and brush very relaxing – although, I must admit, I am a “preschool” artist. When I attended a painting class decades ago, it was because I wanted to hangout with my “artist” friend. But, we had so much fun!

  3. It’s important to be creative and create 🙂

  4. Your photo reminds me to make time for play everyday! Thanks you.

    • Thank you for your vote of confidence, Atreegrowsinblyn. Sometimes we need to “play” and enjoy life. Life is short, they say, and we have to take advantage of every second to live as if its our last. Do you like music and painting too?

      • I like all kinds of music. I played the clarinet throughout my school years; unfortunately it didn’t carry over into adulthood. I’ve taken classes in watercolor and I occasionally will have at it. At the moment, I’ve been teaching myself to crochet and knit. Also, blogging has become a fun hobby.

  5. And that is a gorgeous work of art! 🙂

  6. Lovely painting and photo! 🙂

  7. I wish I had room to spread out and paint. Lucky you! I love your little painting … it exudes a relaxed atmosphere, simple and sweet. 🙂 Enjoy Today!

    • Thank you, Orples! It has been awhile since I last played with my watercolor and brush. Now that I have more time in my hands, I thought it will be an interesting way to practice painting again. 🙂

  8. The artist expresssing feelings; the viewer receiving its’ message.
    Lovely painting!!!
