5x5 Encaustic With Easel. Stillness! I’m learning that my Spirit needs stillness JUST as much as it needs adventure, joy, challenge, striving, excitement etc. Honestly I never understood this. My days are filled to overflowing,pushing my body and spirit way past it’s limits(that’s a good thing right?) A trip to California with 30 other artists and 20 hours of conversation with @carlymilligan, @kaitlund_zupanic, @rachelsportraits taught me many lessons but the biggest Shock😱 was that people sleep! Like really sleep! Adults sleep 7 or 8 hours!? WHAT!? I was blown away! Lessons, insight, and recognition sank into my soul as I was the last to sleep and first up, and realized just how unkind I have been to myself, and how unrealistic I have been expecting so much out of my poor frazzled being. Stillness is new to me, but it is a new goal. Stillness every day! I will be kind to myself!
