- :: Even in literature and art, no one who bothers about originality will ever be original: whereas if you simply try to tell the truth (without caring twopence how often it has been told before) you will, nine times out of ten, become original without ever having noticed it.:: . . . - C.S. Lewis . . Such wise words on finding your own voice as you create. We each have our own dynamic filter and ways we can express what we see. Our own experiences and preferences to bring to the table. What a joy it is to all see the same flower, and then paint it in our own way. I think this is art in its finest and most lovely form✨

- :: Painting. It’s a time of peace for me. A time to stand still and rest in the tiny strokes and beautiful colors. And let your mind think about your next shape, and nothing else::✨🙌🏽 . . This piece is inspired by a picture I took at Roche Harbor (swipe right for a close up!) and it’s the second time I’m painting it. I love returning to a favorite inspiration piece and trying it a few years later to see how I’ve changed. I’ll be sharing the first one I did as soon as the second is done🍂🍁👏🏽Feel free to join in and paint with me if you’re inspired...! Just tag me when you’re done - excited to see what we can create🎨 . . #mindfulpainting #rocheharbor #pumpkinart

- :: luxury is not a necessity to me, but beautiful and good things are :: . . Anaïs Nin . . I just got to meet two of my @instagram friends IRL that I have followed from the beginning. It was so natural meeting their sweet selves in person. We laughed and dreamed, and fell right into creating - together. They had a beautiful enamelware mug, and I painted it for them, and we blended all of our creative goodness together and had a such a wonderful time. I’ve shared our morning’s creation time on my Stories, and I think more hand painted mugs are in my future✨👏🏽🙌🏽 @ethanbarber.co @benashby that was just magic 👏🏽👏🏽
