Art Every Day of the Month Challenge? I just walked into my studio, turned the ipod on shuffle, and for a few minutes picked up around the room, and then grabbed a new handmade journal (handcrafted by my favorite journal maker -- Ann Renee Lighter --). I started using pieces of images lying around on my work surface, grabbed some ink pads, oil pastels, and iridescent chalks. I even made an attempt at drawing some flowers (please remember I am untrained in drawing -- so I am floundering around a bit here). It was fun, easy and it took all of 20 minutes. My mantras: Don't think -- just grab and tear; Don't think -- just pick up a sharpie; Don't think -- just grab some chalk! And if I ask myself anything -- What color pleases me?
And for me, the title (words) fits -- there was no question -- that some things are just supposed to be as well as the very deep knowledge that my body, soul, and mind belongs to the Universe.
