Time for Art


I am making time for art in 2009. I have been so inspired by so many of you. This also my entry for Illustration Friday's topic - "Time". Those of you on my blog list are just some of the artists that have encouraged me. I am a full time pediatric speech-language pathologist but I am going to try to just do art for fun this year whenever I can. I made this ACEO of a rooster. The inspiration was actually a photo on some speech flashcards I was using for teaching the "R" sound. I think I will do an ACEO bird series...next in line are a flamingo, seagull and a cardinal. I LOVE all kinds of birds!!

Here is also a poem I found inspiring:

Time for Everything

Take time to work-
It is the price of success

Take time to think-
It is the source of power

Take time to play-
It is the secret of perpetual youth

Take time to read-
It is the fountain of wisdom

Take time to be friendly-
It is the road to happiness

Take time to pray-
It is the greatest power on earth

Take time to dream-
It is hitching your wagon to a star

Take time to love and be loved-
It is the privelege of God's children

Take time for others-
It is too short a day to be selfish

Take time to laugh-
It is the music of the soul

Take time for beauty-
It is a banquet for the heart
