This is painting #38 from my ‘100 Messages To Myself’ painting series.
This is an original painting. There is only one!
Be the best you can be. Do good. Work hard. Make good choices. Listen to your gut. Be kind. Try to put yourself in other people’s shoes. Listen well. Keep learning. Accept imperfection, but strive always to be better. Take care of our Earth. Take care of one another. Be good. (Here‘s the 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.
