“Life is the art of drawing without an eraser.”

– John W. Gardner, American educator and politician

Think back to the last time you visited the home of a family with young children. You probably saw various pieces of artwork created by those young Rembrants, Picassos, and Monets around their home, especially on the kitchen fridge.

Children live their lives as free spirits and don’t seem to be all too concerned about how things look. As we age, this changes. We become far more aware of the judgments and opinions of others and we often find ourselves holding back our most authentic expressions of ourselves.


How would your professional or personal life look if you threw away all erasers, and simply leaped into each day to pursue your own journey of artistic living?
