Supporting Other Artists

Today's Lesson From The Craft Room:  Supporting The Creativity Of Others Blesses The Creativity Within You
When you support and honor the creative energy and output of others, I strongly believe this, in turn, honors the creative energy within you.  You are letting the Universe know that you value creativity - that it is a gift to be expressed.  Over the 4th of July weekend I went to the Cherry Creek Arts Festival here in Denver.  I had a budget so I, unfortunately, needed to pass by a few pieces that I would have loved to have brought home.  I was beginning to think that a piece of art would not make it home with me, but at the second to last booth I stopped at, I found this amazing vessel!  Both the shape and the color of the glaze initially attracted me.  It connected with me.  And then I stood there trying to logically decide what I would/could do with it.  Somehow I began to envision it outside (in the warm weather it won't crack!) serving as a bird bath :)  I haven't found an appropriate stand for it yet - maybe a wood stump will find me - I think that would be perfect!  For now it is sitting in my kitchen, making me smile every time I glance at it.  This gorgeous vessel was created by Anderson Bailey.  You can check out Anderson's work at his website HERE.  Maybe he'll be headed to a town near you sometime soon! :)  Find someone's art you enjoy and then support their creativity - whether it be by visiting their blog/website or purchasing a piece of their work, you will not only be supporting them, but blessing the creativity within you :)
