I am living downtown and love it. There is an energy in this small city of tree lined streets, stately homes, interesting shops, art galleries and home to the craft college.
On my way home from the local market two cute little girls had created some wonderful sidewalk art. It began with a chalk sign that read "I love art". There is something so timeless and treasured about the easy joy of sunshine, sidewalks and colorful chalk. Their message, their joy was bold and bright, their enthusiasm lit the street and their "gallery" was a delight for everyone walking by!
They were pleased I was taking photos. Their enthusiasm and confidence, the sheer joy of their creating without any inner critic or comparison was delightful! When do we lose that freedom, when do we stop coloring, drawing, creating for the sheer joy of expressing our own unique vision and just doing it. It is summer filled with sunshine days and streets and streets of empty sidewalks. How about just grabbing some chalk and heading outside to make art! Follow the creative joy! Debra, CEO!
