Day 30: Sing a Song

I was going to title this “Yay! I’m done!” , but this title is probably more appropriate.  I painted this quickly, and unfortunately, it shows.  But I am off to a three day quilt retreat this morning!  Fun!  I have put my paints away for another day.  So now I have completed 5 of Leslie’s 30 paintings in 30 day’s challenges, and I have been able to complete each one.  Granted, I am not doing fine art–so it’s much easier.  I have enjoyed all the other art, especially from Karin, Sandy, Sheila, Sea, Cindy, Susan and so many others.  And all the positive comments I received really kept me going, especially when I didn’t feel much like an artist at all.  THANK YOU SO MUCH for your support.

So today’s painting is really a doodle that I added some song lyrics to.  Sing was popularized by Karen Carpenter back in the 70’s, but I guess it’s really a Sesame Street song.  Though I was too old to have ever watched Sesame Street as a kid, I did acquire a SS songbook.  I love this song and especially the lyrics.  I truly believe there is joy to be had in the very act of singing.  It really doesn’t matter if you think you have a good voice or not.  Just SING!
