Paint Like a Five Year Old

You know they say, whoever they are.  I think I have always wondered who "they" are but on with my thought.   They say that you are only as young as you feel.   Now I do totally agree with "they", someday I feel spry and can whip the world and other days  like the old man time at New Years.   

I have told you before I am taking Life Book with Tammy L.   This past week's class was Paint Fearless with  Connie Horvicka of Dirty Footprints-Studio.  We were to paint fearlessly, like a 5 year old.  How sweet and innocent they are, no hang ups just paint and how your feel.   Trusting our inner wisdom.

SOOOOOO with lots of texture on the page and here I went.  Lots of spreading and mushing around.   It did feel good, I swished paint around with wild dance steps gliding around my page like Connie said we would do.    

So here you go,  my page for my Life Book.

I love this saying to stop and smell the roses.  So many times in life we do not do this simple thing in life.   We get so busy with life that we forget to literally stop and smell the roses of life.   So here is the school of little fishies and they are all floating around thinking whatever fish think about and then one of them thinks-----Oh I need to stop and visit with a fellow fishie.  Seeing what is going on in their life and what they are doing.   Some can call it nosey but I call it caring. 
So there you go my take on painting fearless and hope you can see the texture going on there.  
Thanks for stopping by and seeing what is going on in my world today.

  4. The expression of stopping and smelling the roses is fab, I am going to 'make it mine' . Painting like a 5 year old must have been really fun ...just letting your creativity loose without too much thinking, but I think your creation tells us about a very skilled 5 year old, always funny and colorful. Wish you a great day my friend.
