My friend Laurie Ruettimann inspired me again recently, she has a habit of doing so. As a small thank you for this latest inspiration, I sent Laurie one of my poppy sketches, and she wrote a short post titled Art is Currency, which referenced the sketch among other things.
This year my art has shifted to a different place. I’ve continued to develop my art based learning, and I’ve been more intentional (thanks Laurie) about offering some of my art for sale. Art is currency.
I recently celebrated my 50th birthday and with Carole’s encouragement and support a party was thrown. It was great fun – people were kind and generous to me in so many ways. I want to highlight a particularly delightful and artistic aspect of this kindness and generosity, hand made cards. I’m grateful for everything I have received and these cards are another powerful reminder. Art is currency.
