Memorial Day is celebrated as the opening of summer, but it’s true meaning is as a remembrance day for those who have served our country and lost their lives in making this the Land of the Free.
I give my thanks to everyone who has served, not just on the battlefield and military, but for those who serve as peacekeepers (police force), fire-fighters, EMT technicians and the endless list of others who give of their time and talent to make this country great. Thank you for your service.
My sister teaches high school and middle school art. I love her most recent mixed media artwork. Her painting is the perfect choice to use as a blog post for starting off the Memorial Day Weekend. The colors, the energy within the painting…Beautiful!
I emailed my sister, and asked what mediums she used for her painting.
“The mixed media project was done with Acrylic paint, paper, and one of my favorite substances-MODPODGE.”
Her artwork inspires me to get out my own supplies and attempt some exciting art myself. Isn’t that what good teachers do for us? For me, creating art is a celebration of life. When I am painting or crafting I always have a feeling of peace and gratitude in my heart. Give creating a try today. Any type of art will do, from doodling to sculpting, and everything in between. Take a few moments to create a celebration of spirit today.
