Valentine’s Dessert 4

“Most would not think of work as a prize. That is often due to the concept we have of work.

 Work can be that of an artist, the work of creation. Such work is not the response to a whistle or the boring activity that follows a punched time card. Creative work is the fullest human expression of being alive. It comes from the inside out and has no boss other than an inner demand to create a thing of beauty that previously did not exist.

 The primary task of human beings is to creatively work at making our lives a remarkable thing of beauty. Whether we be butcher, baker, or candlestick maker there is always the opportunity to make a truly creative effort of a life’s work by pounding out our dents and polishing that which is already beautiful. When we understand that life is the medium and we are the canvas, our efforts to improve become an exciting challenge rather than a boring task.”

Valentine’s Dessert 4 – 4.5″ x 4.5″ Watercolor

Yes, it’s another dessert.  How fun is that?  All the fun of looking without being attempted to divulge.  This was painted from that same tray of desserts by Mo at WetCanvas.

About the Authors

Earnie Larsen is the author of Stage II Recovery and Stage II Relationships, and coauthor with his sister Carol Hegarty of Days of Healing, Days of Joy.    Sorry, but that is all I could find.  While I was searching though, I ended up buying one of their books from textbooks.com.  “Believing in Myself – Daily Meditations for Healing and Building Self Esteem”.  There should be some great quotes in there for the blog!  🙂

    So cute! This has to be my favorite one. I’m not sure why I like polka dots so much, but with the right colors they are such a happy pattern. That is one enormous blackberry on top and the light blue touches are great. I have to admit I cannot identify these last two desserts. They are clearly quite fancy, however.

      Thanks, Cindy! I couldn’t identify the last two either. I’m guessing they are some kind of custard or something. They look very fattening for sure! 😀
