Dreams Can Come True

I was playing around with some letterforms and decided to write out this quote. I think this is so true. I have dreams for my art but it really will take some courage (and effort) to pursue them.
I wrote this in my comp journal and I managed to erase most of the lines.
I stuck it on a background below.  I decided to reach back into my background archives and this one looked like Fall so I stuck the lettering on it via the magic of Photoshop.


I will be leaving for Greenville tomorrow so this will probably be my last art post for quite a while. Baby Morgan is due soon so Nana is heading up. I used to get some art done while I was up at my daughter's house but now I can't do anything because if baby Marc and just get a glimpse at my art bag he will want to paint. So I paint with him. So cute. Other than pictures of Marc and baby Morgan that will probably be it. 
An art break might do me good although if I go too long without creating something I start getting the DT's. It's my addiction, ya know.
So bye, yall, I will be checking in on you all to see the lovely art you are creating...

Enjoy your special time with your family Martha. My grandchildren live 9 hours away and I miss them so much. They are such a special gift from God.

Have a great time being a grandmother and pampering your daughter. Hope you are feeling better. What will I do with no daily art blogs from Martha, hum, maybe might have to paint myself.

Isn't it interesting that you put this quote about dreams on the background from the "canvas that you dreamed of" three years ago...it was meant for this quote, I guess.
