A new year is the start of a new journey. We set goals, and we make plans. How can we create a better world for ourselves and others as we move forward on our journey? I believe art has the power to do this for ourselves and others. Creating has the power to encourage us and encourage others. During these especially hard times, I think we need creativity to speak louder than ever.

I made these two small works with 2021 in mind. I played around with bright colors and fun images. I used whimsical words and shapes. I created to make something positive and, perhaps, to provide a distraction from the things that are pulling us down right now. Things are often quite serious these days. I have enjoyed a little journey to a happier place with my paintbrush and my canvas. I hope what I have created gives you a little lift and a little joy.

How can you transform your 2021 with a little artistic inspiration? Do you have a way to make an impact using your creative voice? Start 2021 with plans to alter your journey. Set goals, make plans, create, and then share what you create and discover. Do it here. Do it elsewhere. Just remember to share your journey. Use the power of creativity to make everyone’s 2021 a little bit brighter.

Be Funky, 2021

Tears for Dancing, Age 42 

The older I get the less I think about what I can get out of this life. Bad things happen here on Earth and no one is immune. I see my parents suffering, I watch terrible things happen to my friends and I see catastrophic events that create hell on Earth. Revelation 21:4 promises that someday God will wipe every tear from our eyes and the old order of things will pass away. I’m beginning to think that this promise isn’t so far away: it’s just waiting for us at the next stop. Maybe when we die we trade our tears for dancing and enter Heaven. Until then, I'm going to paint, I'm going to write, and I'm going to share when I find hope in this life. That's why I'm here at Journey on Canvas.
