I am a WIP

I am a Work in Progress. Self Portrait. watercolor on Arches paper 12 x 12

I don’t have some hidden meaning for why
I make art.
I just do.
I don’t have any secret messages in my art.
My message is clear.
There is no great angst in my work.
The world is filled with enough angst.
My heart and head are full of love and hope.
If my art is cute and light and fun,
So be it.
You need not call my work art.
What you call it does not diminish me
as an artist.
All I know is that, when I sit down to create,
I am like a vessel that never runs dry,
I am filled with optimism and
the light of a billion stars.
If those feelings show up in my work,
well, I do the Universe honor if it does.
