Creating without expectation

I put this image together after taking a picture of my son’s hand after he played with color at his friend’s house. He inspired me to play too with a photo editing program. Oh how we can learn so much from our children. I often worry too much about getting messy or making mistakes that I forget how fun it is to create without expectation. Too often my mind gets in the way of creative freedom. I want to create again. I want to be free.


I did these 4 separate paintings with acrylic paint during a time in my life when I was searching for my life’s purpose. (OK, when am I NOT searching for my life’s purpose?) I had a lot of fun playing with typography and color when doing these painting and to this day I love looking at their bright colors and message: “I am where I am supposed to be.”
