Happy Friday! It is a happy one over here, as I got to spend the whole morning, creating away in the studio. Here's a behind the scenes look at me preparing my stains, before I add paint to them. The holiday markets are just a few short weeks away, and I'm working to make a few more small pieces for you! I'll post these again, during the painting process, so you can come on the journey with me. xo
I have really been loving the mini paintings series. The act of creating one small fragrant world ever Monday feels like a very tangible way that I can consistently engage with my inspirations and also with you! Here are the last few I've created, with a few words about each to let you know what was the mood behind them. I hope you are enjoying this small but hopefully beautiful part of Mondays as much as I am.
"We were together, I forget the rest" by Walt Whitman. It reminds me of that good feeling we are full of when we're spending time with our favourite people.
"Earth laughs in flowers" by Ralph Waldo Emerson
"Just Love" The inspiration for the quote was really simple. As I was looking through my stash of versus and writing that I love I was feeling like life can sometimes be so full and maybe even a little overwhelming. And during these times it really comes down to this...just love. Give me just love and I have just what I need. XO
