We're lucky to be artists.
We're lucky we can make and share our work with the world.
We're lucky we can inspire, move, compel, and question.
We're lucky we can engage in conversations about art and humanity.
We're lucky to be part of a community of artists.
We're lucky we're part of the 33% of the world's population that can communicate with one another instantly.
We're lucky to be part of a tradition and history of art, which includes names like Leonardo, Michelangelo, Pablo, Georgia, Frida, and Jasper.
We're luckier when other people buy our art, talk about our art, and share our art.
We're luckier when we are grateful about what we have rather than dwelling on what is missing.
We're luckiest of all when we have people to support emotionally during our artist journey.
I'm lucky to do what I do and to share this virtual community with you. Thanks for being here.
Happy St. Patrick's Day to all – Irish, wannabes, or annual green-beer drinkers.

Very true. And we also help make our own luck by being “suited up” and ready when opportunity strikes. Get those ducks in a row…inventory, biz cards, website, pricing, etc. etc. etc. If you follow Alyson, you know the drill.
I AM lucky. I have an opening tonight, my mortgage was JUST paid off this month, and things around me are falling into place. Thanks for the reminder!
More than lucky, I feel blessed. 🙂 Thank you to the Creator….for all of this “luck”!
As a follow-up to Lee’s observation…
Living on Maui, people often say, “you are so lucky” and I always say, “I feel lucky every day to still be here, but there was no luck involved when I bought the plane ticket that got me here in the first place.”
But I must admit, that I do feel lucky that I had the life experiences that led me to becoming a full-time artist. And the “ability” and capability to take the right path when it “luckily” appeared in my life.
And I feel very lucky to have Alyson in my corner and be able to take in all her knowledge and loving advice. Mahalo nui loa Alyson!
I love it when you talk Hawaiian to me, Mckenna!
Right on Alison – you just said it BEST! Happy St. Patty’s!
I shopped for cabbage for my St. Patrick’s Day dinner and it was so beautiful, I decided I had to paint it first! The finished painting is posted on my facebook page:
I like the way it came out… and…tomorrow we’ll eat it!
Now that’s an idea, Dorothy!
I loved your quote. “We’re lucky to be part of a tradition and history of art, which includes names like Leonardo, Michelangelo, Pablo, Georgia, Frida, and Jasper.” It provides the context of something bigger than each individual. It validates the creativity shared by artists and those who love the arts.
I’m glad you liked that, Anne. I think sometimes – too often – we forget where we came from.
so true! the studio is definitely may happy place. thanks for the reminder
