I just opened a new “store” at TeachersPayTeachers. This drawing is a FREE digital download. Print it out and have some fun coloring it in! Check it out here.
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!
Can you tell I love to sing?
Music is a big part of my life and always has been. I sang my first solo in church when I was just 3 years old, so music was there from the very beginning. I love singing and got my degree in voice. Today (and for most of my adult life) I am a church choir director. Choral music is probably my favorite thing to listen to–especially the Mormon Tabernacle Choir. I love harmony and how all the voices come together to make something truly beautiful and inspiring. So whether you are making music or simply listening, I encourage you to surround yourself with good music. It’s one of the best things this world has to offer!
