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!

Taking Initiative



I started this visual journal entry in June and finished it today. It is about being lonely and taking initiative.

Do you ever get tired of having to be the one to initiate things? Do you ever wish someone would call you up or text you and ask you to do something, instead of you having to? I do.

Do you ever wonder if people are waiting for you to take initiative? I do.

It is also about feeling lonely even though one may be surrounded by people. Do any of you ever feel that way? I do sometimes.


As many of you know, I am a nature nut. Even though I may be by myself in nature, I never feel alone in nature. Insects are always approaching, the wind usually visits, the sun shines, birds sing, owls hoot, water waves hello, leaves dance in excitement to see you, frogs rib-bit... It seems that nature does its best to include us, all we have to do is look around, listen and be present. I have had some amazing experiences in nature, just because I took the initiative to be there.

The funny thing is the day after I wrote this in my journal, a friend did contact me to go out for lunch. We had a fabulous heart to heart, mind to mind visit! The universe does listen!

Maybe I did take initiative after all by writing my thoughts down....hmmmm.



Happy Paint Party Friday to you and thank you for taking initiative to share your art and for visiting other peoples' worlds and for leaving thoughtful comments.
