Remember the line from Forrest Gump - Run Forrest, Run! Well, I've been running for the past year - and now it's on to PAINT Mimi, PAINT!
Even as I work to claim it as my livelihood, it still feels like a treat and indulgence. Last night, as I prayed before sleep about how I should spend today, the nudge was "be Mimi the artist."
Sounds like it should be so simple, but life intervenes.
I did spend the first hour or two at two different beaches, painting Mini-Mimi's in the front seat. Three new ones (below.)
Why did Forrest run? At first it was to run away from the bullies. Until he realized he was good at it.
I don't thinking I'm painting to run away from anything, but who knows, maybe on some level I am. Painting to run away from part-time job after part-time job that I thought would do the trick for me financially, and constantly fell short. Maybe when I paint more, I'll discover that it IS what God put me on this earth to do.
Gosh, I sure hope so.
Thanks for reading. Stay tuned.
