The Power Of Art

My I Am Enough Postcards and Magnets available in my Etsy Shop

Kathy bought a pack of my I Am Enough Postcards and left me a message saying that she was a counselor and gave them to her clients.

I remember talking to Jon about the fabric painting that is the image for this postcard on our podcast.  It was during that conversation that I realized that the single image of the goddess I was creating was complete without any other elements.

She was an illustration of the idea “I Am Enough”.  But that’s how art works.  So often it’s my art that tells me what I’m thinking, what’s going on inside of me.

I made that fabric painting a while ago, but since I started making my work into postcards and magnets and posters, they have a longer life.  And they get to reach so many more people.

Now I have a good collection of magnets and postcards, all affirmations, some accompanied by words, some just images.

I love when I get a message like Kathy’s, knowing that my art is doing good in the world.

Next week I’m going to start the process of having my Shield of Words made into a magnet and postcards.  Now she’s in her new home, doing her good work on Kim’s wall.  Soon, she’ll be able to be in the homes of so many more people.

And that reminds me of the importance of artists and the power of art in all its forms.

  1. Maria, I ordered four of the I Am Enough postcards for our four granddaughters. Three of them are in college and put them on their bulletin boards. The youngest of the four is a high school senior and she posted it on her bulletin board at home and plans to take it with her to college next year. My message to them has always been how awesome each of them is and to never doubt themselves. The postcards reinforced that message. Now I’m looking forward to the Shield of Words. The messages in your work is timeless. Thank you for being you.

    1. Thank you Pat, that makes me so happy to hear. And I do love that younger woman can relate to the images and words too. You are a specail Grandmother.
