Creative Thursday Art

The new painting that I blogged about on Monday arrived today from Marisa at Creative Thursday. I'm so excited, I have to share it with you. It's up on my temporary art wall, temporary because I have to paint my office and add all of my prints and paintings to this space, but for now this little painting will stay right where it is.

Sure, it may look like the wall of a fifth grader, but anything goes in my workspace. After sitting in cubicles and offices for 10 years surrounded by schematics and excel spreadsheets pinned all around me, I decided that "free" is in the word "freelance" and I need to exercise my freedom of expression in my home office, on my level, now that I'm working for myself. And you know what? Good for me. And if your art is a bit childish, three cheers to you, too. If you don't surround yourself with things that evoke certain positive emotions in you, then save your money and live with four blank walls, no furniture, and throw a mattress in the middle of the room because I truly feel that you're not living if your space reflects the style and taste of someone else. For me, I think 34 going on 13 pretty much sums up this little space above my desk, and I like it this way.
