Monday Inspo 2

Last week I posted some uplifting pieces of art and I got a lot of positive feedback so I decided to do it again. I always think I don’t do a lot of Bible verses or Christian references but that is super wrong. I do it ALL THE TIME. Clearly, writing those things down and practicing them are meaningful to me.

Seek him that maketh the seven stars and Orion,
and turneth the shadow of death into the morning,
and maketh the day dark with night: that calleth for the waters of the sea,
and poureth them out upon the face of the earth: The Lord is his name:
—Amos 5:8

A tiny shrine to things I miss since the pandemic started: friends, travel, browsing books in the library, being other places. I made this is an incredibly cathartic online workshop in April. It sits by my desk as a reminder that this too shall pass.

“Can you prepare for the worst and move on?” I made this on January 28 this year. It feels like a bad premonition and yet here I am still plugging away in a world I never dreamed I’d see. This color story ended up being the basis for my Women’s Work Collection. I have a deep love for it because of that.

May 17, 2020 prayer from Nadia Bolz-Weber. You can read the full text here. I never used to write in my art journals. I didn’t want to look at my own handwriting. I’ve been working on stylizing it in a way that is pleasing to me and I’m glad to say this works for me now. Also, it helps to write in pencil so if I really wreck it I can start again.

i thank You God for most this amazing
day: for the leaping greenly spirits of trees
and a blue true dream of sky;and for everything
which is natural which is infinite which is yes
