Creating art

Yesterday my brother in law had his donor stem cell transplant. I couldn't seem to get him, his children or my husband and his parents off my mind. I knew if I had started to paint, I would end up with a black canvas, which wouldn't do anyone any good, then I came across this wonderful book I'm reading called Taking Flight by Kelly Rae Roberts http://www.kellyraeroberts.blogspot.com/
and decided to alter a book with a photo of all of us.
I found it to sooth this aching feeling I had.Lisa D.

Isn't it a wonderful book? I have read through alittle bit of it. I am hoping to be able to read more after the new year.

Sometimes artwork is the only way to pull through things. The black paintings truely suck but they create great bases for vibrant color in the future. Hang in there.
