I'm working on some fun new things around here, and February is looking like a ginormous pile of deadlines and rehearsals and creative dreaming.
It's been a bit of a whirlwind but I'm trying to slow down a little. Be present. Stay focused. Pray.
Always feel like it's easier to slow down when I'm painting. Because I don't really want to rush through it...and with the artwork I've been doing lately, I can't. This is the latest. Scrap wood from my dad's shop. Phrasing idea from Sophia (I was going to put "Go be awesome today" but she liked "Don't forget to be awesome today" so I went with it.)
I distressed the letters this time.
...and instantly became addicted to the distressed letters. This is actually three pieces of wood my dad glued together for me. I painted it the same color as our living room walls, then added the words. I worked on it at the kitchen table, in my office, around the kids, by myself. It wasn't a quick one.
Then I took it back to my dad's shop for framing.
I can't explain how much I love it. I realized I want my personality in our house and this is something I would say to my kids...so I'm putting it either in our upstairs hallway or in our kitchen.
Why not? I want everyone to remember to be awesome today.
I'm working on a few custom pieces for people who've emailed...if you're interested let me know. I'd love to create something special just for you.
