Those shoes though!

Throwback Thursday to three week's ago when I attended Art in Bloom at the Milwaukee Art Museum. Although the collection of paintings, sculptures, and floral arrangements are always inspiring, this may be my favorite photo from that day. Imagine the joy in donning a big, pink tutu (to match your pink tresses) and yellow strappy sandals (perhaps sans lucite heel) just to spend timing creating something original and beautiful!

Wouldn't it be wonderful if we could indulge that sense of whimsy -- to allow ourselves to play dress-up and color more often? As Picasso said, “Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once [s]he grows up.”
