Art as Play

I am new to blogging, but I love to read other people’s blogs, so here I go!
I work on my art almost every day. But when I find myself taking it too seriously, I do art as “pure play”. This includes doing decoupage, doing a painting that I will most likely paint over some other day, making handmade journals to give as gifts. All this brings me tremendous satisfaction and re-ignites my creative fire for doing new art to show in my online gallery. Should the day come when I no longer can play at my art, I will probably no longer do art….cause when it becomes only serious and only work….it ceases to be what I love.
