Painting Flowers

My daughter and I painted with my mother the other day at her retirement home. Look how focused she is on her work! She has forgotten all of her cares and is intent on capturing the beauty of the plant in front of her.

How do we go even a day without doing something creative? Expressing ourselves through art, no matter our age, is a calming, centering endeavor.

On March 20th, we celebrate the first day of spring. Narciso Amarillo/Yellow Daffodil is one of my favorite Morning Circle Media books because when we read it, we paint flowers. We learn about primary and secondary colors. We treat ourselves to tulips and hyacinth and revel in the awakening around us.

Welcome spring in your own exuberant way this month. Paint flowers with someone you love.

Happy spring!
