This is painting #17 from my ‘100 Messages To Myself’ painting series.
This is an original painting. There is only one!
This painting is directly inspired (dare I say maybe the look of it is even copied a bit) by my dear friend Kari Chapin. This particular sign-board idea was an art-making prompt that Kari came up with for our ‘Create A New Story’ course that we recently ran together online. “What do you need to hear?” was the question we asked in the course on this day. My answer: “you can make different choices”. Anytime. Right now. It’s never too late. (Here‘s the full message I wrote when I painted it.)
My life changed dramatically in August 2018 when my husband suddenly died and then again in January 2019 when my baby girl was born. It’s been a strange 15 months! Creating nearly daily art has been one of the main ways I’ve tuned in to my feelings and to myself as I’ve moved forward. Sharing the art that I’ve been making and the messages I’ve been giving to myself has been a powerfully healing part of my journey, and I’m so grateful to have the opportunity to share my images and thoughts with you.
