Get Messy Week 2

Get Messy Wk2 by LaWhimsy“Why hurry over beautiful things? Why not linger and enjoy them?” – Clara Schumann

Why not, indeed?! Taking the time to stop and smell, savor and thoroughly enjoy the roses – both literal and figurative – is an essential part of life. Truly, it’s the best part of life since it’s all of those little, beautiful things that make-up the whole and that are remembered with fondness and utter joy. My art journal pages this week represent this to me, since it’s little pieces all pulled together, with plenty of soft, white space to allow for observation and enjoyment.
