Live boldly, laugh and make art

How my stuck Christmas tree showed me we have to let go of our past to move forward

The fully decorated Christmas Tree was stuck in the hallway between the front door and the kitchen. I was dragging it by the branches from the front room to the family room in the back of the house. The tree was easy to move until it got stuck.

My stuck Christmas tree showed me we have to let go of our past to move forward.

Don’t think about making art, just get it done

Once you are dead you are dead.

So while you are alive. Make art. When you finish one painting, sign it, frame it, hang it. Then make another one.

Don’t think about making art, just get it done.
