I must admit that Toon Tuesday is my favorite post to make. :-D What can I say... it's tied in with my passions and dreams! Art is a major reason WHY I am losing weight and getting healthy. I want to be the person I was created to be, and a large part of that involves art.
In a nutshell, I want to learn to love God and love others. And one way I can love others is to offer art that might be encouraging or uplifting, that people might enjoy. To bring a smile, to add joy or beauty. You won't find me doing a "Guernica" like Picasso (here). I would be more guilty of doing a "happy" painting like Kinkade (here). ;-)
Recently I learned of the existence of a thing called Mail Art from Alan, at Fools Fitness (HERE). It was so much fun to do, that I wanted to share part of it that I captured with my camera before I mailed off the package (click to enlarge).
So, get out your Sharpies and doodle! If you post a doodle for your own Toon Tuesday, feel free to leave a comment with a link to it here on this post (or any Toon Tuesday), and I'll mention it so others can share in the fun.
Don't know what to doodle? Well, think of what you were going to say with words, and then add a doodle to go with it! Still stuck?? Pick a letter from what you were going to say (or the first letter of your name) and write it alone on a blank piece of paper. Now doodle all around it!
Don't feel like you have to be some kind of a professional, just have fun!
From Dr Phil's book: "You can create an internal dialogue that is healthy, constructive, and joyful."
My verse for today: "Teach us to number our days aright, that we may gain a heart of wisdom."
My quote for today: "To have passion, to have a dream, to have a purpose in life. And there are three components to that purpose. One is to find out who you really are, to discover God. The second is to serve other human beings, because we are here to do that. And the third is to express your unique talents, and when you are expressing your unique talents you lose track of time." --Deepak Chopra
