Big doors swing on little hinges.  You never know what a seemingly small encounter, conversation, email, etc. will impact your life on a scale larger than your imagination.  

This week a postcard advertising company called Avant Card launched an image of mine called "Not Forgotten".  I was selected as an emerging humbled and honoured...and thrilled to pieces.  Roughly 35K of these postcards are currently being distributed to 400 venues throughout Sydney, Melbourne, and Brisbane.  I see them as 35K doors of opportunity, a chance to make someone smile, desire to paint, remind them that they are loved, and maybe even attract a few clients.  Who knows?  Anything can happen.

Use What You Have

Just about everyone I meet either wants to be an artist, or has a creative soul so deeply buried they don't know where to start.  So I just wanted to take a moment to say to anyone reading this...create something.  Stop allowing blank paper or canvas to intimidate you...grab a pencil, a brush...heck, a stick on a dirt path.  Take 5 minutes and analyze your artwork with as much precision as a 3 year old.  Drink a glass of wine or blindfold yourself if that what it takes, but if you incorporate a few minutes of creative exploration into your life each day, I personally believe you will find it both enriching and invigorating.  I'd keep rambling but the baby just woke up...LOL.
