Art With Heart Monday - Feel Young Again!

Calla Lily Music
Watercolor Collage - 11x15

'It takes a long time to become young.'
Pablo Picasso

When our art flows effortlessly it feels so very good. Especially now as adults when our lives are so busy and the world is so full of conflict. Making art is a reminder of a time when life was more effortless, when we were young and carefree. A reminder of all that is still possible. Of the way it was when we were children and curiosity and joy were simply enough. Creativity makes us feel young 

*** I wrote this while we were staying in the Smoky Mountains with family and got the date wrong so it posted my Art With Heart Monday a day early - enjoy! ***

Watercolor & Words Wednesday - Set Sail to Your Dreams

Instant Watercolor Print - 8x10 

'Set sail to your Dreams'

I have always loved the idea of sailing and the few times that I have been on a sailboat it felt like we were flying across the water. It is on my Wish List to really learn how to sail someday and now that we live on a lake it should be easier to make that dream come true!

This 8x10 print of my original watercolor painting is ready for instant downloading so that you can print, trim and frame for yourself or to give as a gift. I am also happy to customize a printable for you with a different quote of your choice using the same font and color. 

My watercolor printables are a great way to make a creative connection with someone special in your life. I invite you to view all of my instant prints in my Etsy Shop!

We are SO excited to announce that our daughter Lisa got engaged over the weekend to Drew Thompson! We are thrilled for both of them and look forward to having Drew join the Kisling clan. 

They both live in Florida and Lisa will be graduating from Medical school in May and then starting her residency in Preventative Medicine in July. Drew is in medical sales so we are expecting them both to take care of us in our old age:)
