My parents... mom & dad are a fun bunch. They don’t take life too seriously and have been by each other’s side since high school. My sister took this photo of them a few years ago and I have wanted to paint it since. Merry Christmas, everyone!
Do you agree?
What do you first see when you walk into your home? I had recently moved to Bloomington, and just moved into my house. One of the first things I did was put a hammock up in my backyard. I moved here to be with the trees. It was as if it was the first time I had ever looked up. The tree canopies dancing, barely touching. This connection and experience brings me so much joy. Some people want the ocean or the mountains, but trees are what does it for me. I painted this to remind me. It is the first thing I see when I walk into my home and reminds of the magical connection I have with nature here.
I love the process of creating a drawing and making a space come to life. SketchUp rocks.
A little weekend inspiration for you via Sfgirlbybay. Do you think the terrazzo trend will be around for a while? I love that it can be an eco-friendly option and has potential to incorporate a fun palette of colors. It looks absolutely stunning in this minimalist kitchen!
* Sigh * Doesn't it feel good to claim your space...to take time for yourself? How will you be doing that this weekend?
