Love of Art

My art group, Flytribe, is having a Love of Art Blog Hop today and I am linking up!

I love art because it allows me to express myself.  I believe creative expression is good for the soul and I believe in the life-enhancing and healing properties of creating art. Making art is soothing and meditative for me - really gets my mind to another place, and allows me to connect on a deeper level.
The art I'm sharing today is the mini quilt that I made as a valentine for my husband.

The heart is made from my hand painted canvas sewn to a blue background and quilted with black.


A small heart appliqued to the other.


I invite you to check out the blog hop and visit all the other blogs for more art love!
