What is at My Art Table Wednesday?
This. This is on my art table this week. The most important “art table project” I’ve ever done. This is the week I dropped my son off at college.
My son. The most significant and important creation I have been a part of. The best choice I’ve ever made, the most awe-inspiring thing I have watched grow, change, blossom. Just like art. It is true of him, my other two children, and husband as well. My family.
But this week it is this guys’ turn. His turn to start something new, find independence, take off and fly (oh, dear God, please fly). It is significant for him to be sure, but let me tell you, it is super significant for this mamma too. I swear I think parents should get some sort of award for raising a person. Taking care of another soul, guiding, directing, hoping, and staying the course. Am I right? It is hard work. Not for the weary or faint of heart. That is what my husband and I always say to each other.
But, man, I love this lil’ family of mine, this creation. My most lovely, honoring and lasting art project I have ever made.
I was going to post some art here this week, at least something since I promised I would. But my heart tells me otherwise. My heart says that this post can hold its’ own and should not be disrupted by another art piece, although loved and cherished, not nearly as important as this one. This is a stand alone project, the most important of its kind.
I will be back next week with pretty stuff, new things going on around here that I am excited to share, some eye candy. So please come back for a visit. Thanks for the read everyone.
