The Artist

An artist can find art anywhere.  Toddlers are artists.  This morning my toddler found art in his oatmeal.  He spread it all over his table and arms and couldn’t have been happier.  I couldn’t yell at my young Picasso because it was so innocent.  But oatmeal does not easily clean up so I needed to tag team with my hubby.  He took the toddler to the tub while I tackled the table.  Although I wouldn’t choose oatmeal as my medium I do wish I would take the time to find the joy and beauty in things around me.  I take many things for granted and sometimes forget how to enjoy the simple things.  I challenge you and myself to find art in something unexpected today. See something as if it were the first time and notice its beauty.  We were all artists once and can be again.
