This website is a journal of artist Nancy Terrell and has been created for her grandchildren - Lauren, Christian, Hannah, Lukie and Liana to show them that experimentation, in artistic ways, is fun and brings much enjoyment.
"I hope that I can pass on to you the wonder I have for life - a source of great joy - that most of us are born with ten fingers & toes that can play in the sand, stroke our pets and caress our loved ones. We have beautiful eyes that can see the stars & moon at night and enjoy the paradise of trees and flowers, grown by the sun in the daylight. Our arms and feet enable us to swim, walk, run, jump - everything but fly - but many of us even do this at night in our dreams.
How is it possible that we live amid such creative energy and rarely seem to notice it? It's simple - we just have to open our eyes wide and "see" in as many different ways as possible. This is why poets and philosophers, thoughout the ages, have been called "seers". Beauty is in the eyes of the beholder so always look at yourself and what you create as beautiful and worthwhile. Your creations are your essence - the "isness" of you. Open your eyes, look at things upside down, lying on their side and in different colors and shapes. Experiment !! Have fun !! There is no wrong - if you don't like the way something turns out, just redo it - simple.
We are all quite fortunate in that we were granted millions of ways to use our creative juices. Some paint, others dance, some love physics, others sewing - it matters not what you do or really even how you do it. What matters is the enjoyment. For life is really not about jobs or money, what you own or where you travel - it is about living - each day on this planet - in complete harmony, peace, love and enjoyment.
So lets try to appreciate the journey of our path. These pages are personal - for my friends, family and grandchildren. I would like to think that they will enjoy creating and the process of making artistic designs as much as I have. Ciao!"
