2011 MSAA Art Showcase Entrants
Connie Lewis – Gibsonburg, OH
Art is a universal language. It can speak volumes and express and release thought, feelings, and emotions that can be experienced and interpreted in a manner that words alone cannot describe. As I created this piece I was trying to express my belief in the power of positive thinking.
I hope, when you look at this print, you will find the positive side in all you see, feel, and experience. Use this as an opportunity for growth and understanding that what you see will be negative only if we allow it, or positive if we embrace it.
Art therapy, in my opinion, is the most effective forms of treatment, a one stop shop, for all. Art can be healing, for both the creator and observer. Creating is a wonderful way to release the negative and inspire the positive emotions, while achieving physical range of motion and movement through creative expression. I hope you can always see the bright side of everything. The sun rises and sets everyday. May we always make the best of each and every day. I hope you feel as inspired when you view my artwork as I do creating it.
