This is painting #16 from my ‘100 Messages To Myself’ painting series.
This is an original painting. There is only one!
I’m in a new season now and have come out of the darkness. I haven’t been fully in the darkness, but like I mentioned, it was a hard few months over the summer and felt a lot better since summer ended. There is so much good on the horizon and in the right now. I’m feeling good about the future and all the potential it holds for my little babes and cats and me, and that makes me happy. (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.
