many blessings

I am lucky enough to have this original painting by Liv Lane hanging in my living room.  I am amazed with the amount of joy and good energy that artwork brings to a home.  Yesterday I picked a card from an inspirational deck of zen cards.  This is what it said:

It makes no difference what particular form your creativity takes- it can be painting or singing, planting a garden, or making a meal.  The important thing is to be open to what wants to be expressed through you.  Remember that we don't possess our creations; they do not belong to us.  True creativity arises from a union with the divine, with the mystical and unknowable.  Then it is both a joy for the creator and a blessing to others.  

Wishing you all a beautiful, creative day!

So true... what a lovey, sunny piece of art, Liv's personality just shines right through.

"The important thing is to be open..." that hit home for me, it is so easy, sometimes, to forget that.
