Sometimes life as an artist can be overwhelming.
Every where we go we are sure to see something worth making notes in our mind... the colors of something we see, the lines of an old building, and oh... the sky is ever wondrous with design changing events from day to day, hour to hour. That's Art n Life!
I am in awe sometimes when I look around at the creations God has made.
Doesn't it make you wonder how He even thought of the smallest details of things we don't even see, the tiny little cells and how everything has a purpose!
In my working career, I use to look at cells and things with microscope, grow things on a petri dish and give the reports to the doctors which in turn treated their patients.
I will never forget how amazed I was when I first started learning, I couldn't believe the things I saw that could never be seen with the naked eye. These living cells all had a job to do whether it was to protect our bodies from infection or if it was a fungi, etc. It was amazing.
The world around us is like that, everything has a purpose, a shape, a color, its own beauty. Creations like the autumn colors on trees and bushes, nature from flowers to weeds, animals and humans, etc., beauty is everywhere, and yes, that's art-n-life!
God's creations are so unique and so amazing! I can't help but to say Thank You Father for all you have done.

Have time on your hands?
Pick up a brush and paint or crayons or colored pencils or anything to make art with. It is the creating and doing that is so satisfying and the interest it sparks. If you've never made art, please try I bet you like it. It doesn't have to be great or perfect, the idea is to get started and being able to make out what the art piece is. It could be flowers, a single daisy or rose or even a single leaf or grape and it doesn't have to look realistic or even close... you get the picture (no pun intended).
Then share it with your friends or relatives, maybe get them interested. After they see how excited you are and satisfied with your life.
What use to be boring hours in between all the hectic activity around you and the interest in life art causes, you will find a new person within. Get the kids in on it also, have a family hour to just be together and create. And on some nice days have a family picnic outing to go photo shooting of trees, buildings, foliage. It's great fun and you and the family will enjoy it, don't forget about your friends, they may like to come along to.
Your painting friend,
