Warrior Artist

JoDee’s Warrior Artist symbolizes the artist’s desire to create.
Her mask – a dove – symbolizes divine inspiration and
Her paintbrush is a sword – her spiritual weapon.

Congrats on a job well done –
And for your feature in the illustrious Somerset Magazine!

Music To Inspire You
Welcome To
Music Moves Me!

This week at Friendship Friday – Week 234 our Friend Of The Week was Create With Joy reader Charles Wolf of Impulsive Artistry – an incredibly gifted photographer, painter and musician!

For this week’s Music Moves Me, I wanted to treat you to the beautiful sounds of Motions – the single from Charles’ solo piano album, Ponderings – which he dedicates to the victims of terrorism around the world.

I like the idea of Inspiration Monday.
Monday’s often get the short end of the stick
But they are fraught with potential!
Judy Palmer
