Happy 2015! Ok, I'm a little late but this deep freeze has me hibernating in my studio. Which isn't all that bad because lots of new work is being created! Here are a few in-progress shots of some custom client work I've been happily toiling away at. And a beautiful piece of writing that is keeping me inspired and reminds me of that death, winter, endings can bring new colour into this world. 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
