Someone recently asked me what my motto on the blog meant..."scattering joy". Well. Quite simply put it means this. I believe that literally through my art, writing and teaching I scatter pieces of my joyful self to you. Picture little drops of joy being sprinkle on you like pixie dust. Cheesy, yep. But honest. I just can not help it. My work has always been chopped ful of cheerful, happy images. Simple images that represent a life that is by no means perfect, but is lined with hope and joy. I can't even try to paint an icky somber image. I have a hard time painting with brown and black even! Although I do love a black outline. hehe...So, I hope this answers any questions you might have had. Because literally it is exactly as it sounds. Scattering joy. Try it. I'm telling you it makes for a much happier life.
