Unless you’re roaming in a bakery 🤗
If you’ve been around long enough to recognize this print, you should probably be sainted. I’m re-making some of my old flat lays to update the digital downloads section of the site - you know, because I was making them during the boys’ nap time and only took iPhone photos the first time 🤷🏼♀️ (also, a moment of silence for nap time 😭)
Looking back through my feed last night made me a little sad actually. This quote was the first one I ever did with just leaves - back when I posted almost everyday just to create something and felt zero pressure to do/be anything. There’s definitely a balance between letting things push you to improve and progress or allowing the overthinking to cripple you. I’ve been stuck on the overthinking side for awhile. If you’ve made it this far, what do you think?
Several years ago I was reading Patti Smith's memoir #JustKids. I painted this scene of her grief...
"A white sky, a grey sea, and this singular black coat." _______
I entitled the piece "Grace for Grief." There was something so striking to me about the image. The grace meaning that grieving is not a black and white ordeal. There is a whole sprawling sea of grey. An ocean of turbulence and calm, storms and silence which can help you weather whatever you need to heal.
Loss comes in many forms, I have heard many stories. I realized recently that in all my moving and meeting new people I have become a confidante, a keeper of secrets, and a safe place to grieve.

Also, I've been so inspired by all the folks working on their Spring 2018 #oneroomchallenge! Though I'm not participating this year, I thought it would be a great time to reminisce my submission (seen here our 'Camp Room') from last year. Keep up the good work guys! 📷 @veronicalolaphoto
