Art and Positive Thinking

Welcome to my Renee Loves Art blog!

My focus is exploring, creating and reflecting upon the positives of life and connecting them to my art whether it be photography, pen and ink drawings, watercolour paintings, mixed media, digital media or any other possible media I dive into!


I hope you join me on my art adventure!

Positively Unexpected

It's the positively unexpected things that that turn an ordinary day into an extraordinary day!  I have the usual exhaustion, not out of the ordinary for June. The moment I sit down, the school year catches up with me, my head bobs and I am out like a light bulb.  So naturally, when I woke up, it was nine o'clock and I didn't have anything for my blog that I created for today.  I decided to go outside for fresh air, and of course took my camera with me. It was lightning and thought I would try to capture that on camera.  Ya, right.  After much time passing, I decided to call it quits.  I placed my camera inside and called my dog to the door to go out for her nightly "duties" before bed.  That is when the positively unexpected thing happened.  The wind had temporarily subsided, I looked up and suddenly a great blue heron silently glided over the garage, then gracefully waving its wings, it aviated into the dark stormy sky, turning my day from ordinary to extraordinary. Herons are one of my favourite birds, next to owls.  It seems that the silent positively unexpected things that occur instantaneously and for a short period of time tend to alter our days for the better!

I decided to record the experience in a metaphorical different way, since my camera was inside while I was outside.  Take a peek!
