Motivational Mixed Media Canvas Art



PAPER ROCKET

It's a journey. It's a dream. It's a bit of a stretch maybe...but set your goal and aim for it!

What is propelling Clara's rocket here are the words, "Long range goal."

In archery class we didn't give up if we didn't hit the bull's eye. We tried again the next day at class. Set clear goals and aim, aim, aim.

It would be hard to hit the bull's eye if you didn't have arrows. What are the tools you need to succeed? What are the tools I need to succeed? Some tools are in our nature. Compassion and understanding if you are a caregiver or doctor. An artist needs an imagination, often we paint from memory or how we think it should look. Maybe you feel you can't draw but you have a great imagination with words and can string them together in the most unusual way. (This is definitely not me with words.) Everyone has their own natural talent waiting to be discovered.

I used a mixture of papers, paint and canvas for this collage to remind myself to aim high like Clara and spread the love like she is doing with hearts.

Cool. Seems everyone is thinking in terms of mission statements and long term goals lately. Could it be due to the new year? hmmm.
