Crossing T’s and Dotting I’s

This is a little oil painting (12 x 12in) that I did of the back porch of my little Dream.Love.Paint cottage. It’s a simple place absent of technology, full of peace.


Here’s one thing that keeps popping up for me when I’m working on the things that I’m inspired to do.
(I should probably print this on my forehead…)

When inspiration appears
and you say yes
Get ready
to let some things go


I just felt you get choked on what you were drinking!  Sputter, sputter.  I know!
It’s obvious once you put it into words.

Inspiration will not wait while you cross every ‘t’ and dot every ‘i’ of your life

you’re gonna need to let some stuff go
 in order to be in service to the BIG IDEA.

It isn’t all going to get done.  You knew that already though.

The T’s and the I’s that we are spending so much precious time on crossing and dotting are probably not going to matter much when it’s all said and done.

The inspirations will.

    Dreama, I’m learning that my inspiration comes when I’m actually DOING my art. Then I tell myself not to let household chores or other activities distract me from this wonderful opportunity.ReplyCancel
