A year of:
Daily struggles and little triumphs. Of gratitude and surrender, (to each day and what it brings). And of endless prayer, (that I can learn to love better...through my scattered fears, through the overwhelming beauty, through the grind of this modern parenting/job having life).
-Woodcarving + woodworking (kept me distracted in the best way, in the way that only working with your hands can)
-Making puzzles again, playing with a new color palette.
-5 Points Market, gracious enough to have my work on their walls for this winter. (Thank you, Jasper. xo)
-My old studio, missing everything about it except the heat in the summertime. But grateful that I can now work at home, painting and woodworking.
-Listening, mostly to nothing new...old rock and roll...CCR, Van Morrison, Paul Simon and such.
-Reading, The Body Keeps The Score by Bessel Van Der Kolk, (a brilliant book about developmental trauma and all that we can do for ourselves and others to recover from it)
