It’s a newer obsession of mine, seeking my artistic side. Art and crafty type hobbies were not something I grew up with. I came from a very practical household. Artsy type endeavors were considered frivolous and a waste of money and time. This kind of sentiment is something that’s been bred into me and my own nature. To a point I was kind of fearful of it. 

But now as I explore more and more that artsy side of myself I’m finding it to be really meditative and so good for my state of mind. I will definitely be throwing myself more and more into areas of life I’ve avoided because of how I was raised. It’s mind expanding and liberating to try out simple things like painting that were never part of my childhood.

Thanks to The Mermaid Factory for a fun place to create, dream, imagine, grow and allow us all to nurture the artist within We’ll be back to do the dolphin!
