Make Lemon Art.
When Life Gives You Lemons, Make Lemon Art
This is my new saying.
I’ve lemon-twisted the old phrase,
‘When Life Gives You Lemons,
The revised axiom, the paintage creation, arose from a lemony situation. Not that there’s anything wrong with lemons. Just as there’s nothing wrong with pear shapes. Indeed, I prefer lemons to lemonade…and they are so much more healing.
Let’s reclaim fruit beauty. Let’s reclaim our lives from the sour times.
But if we are talking lemons as in bitter, difficult times,
life has been presenting me with those small sour fruits of late. Life has been squirting lemon juice in my eye.
I just want you to know that it is, it truly is, possible to give yourself respite from Life’s Lemons by making art.
The picture backstory? A friend had given me a lemon print shirt. (sorry dear friend, but I figured it was for art rather than for wearing). Who knew that one well-intended brightly printed blouse would spawn a whole new outlook – a whole new art-burst?
Or that it would inspire the transformation of despair into joyful creative expression?
Do you feel like making lemon art?
with love, art and soul
