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!

Be Positively Brave, Faces 9 and 10

What does being positively brave look like?  For some of us, it is putting our art out there for others to see, for others of us, it's taking that first step to being independent from those that try to do everything for us, sometimes it is simply getting up in the morning and facing the world.  What ever you brave looks like, this is a reminder to be strong and be brave to do what ever it takes to make you happy, healthy and feel fulfilled.

I especially dedicate this to my dad, who is facing some health challenges and is about to receive treatment again.  Just know that we are here for you and when you need someone there to help you feel brave, we will be there for you!

Last night some of you read my blog and learned that my camera is having health problems too!  My dad read my blog and dreamed all night about shopping for a camera for me.  After his doctor's appointment today, he took my mom to Costco to finish the shopping he started in his sleep, so that I could find the best deal and keep taking pictures.  He uses my photos to create puzzles on his computer for himself!  Despite his pain and upcoming treatment, he took time to think of others....well... me.  The unselfishness in my family is unbelievable.

Thank you to all of you my dear family and blogging friends for being brave in your own way.  You are making the world a better place to be!  Keep being positively brave!

    1. I thank my lucky stars for my family every day! Thanks you for the encouragement. I appreciate it, and it motivates me to keep on creating and writing!

  2. You sound like you have such a warm and friendly family, I'm sorry your dad has some health problems and I hope he is feeling better very soon. Being brave can be hard but it is easier if you have the security of knowing other people care, a lovely page and as always thought provoking.
