keep calm

Keep Calm. Prints available in my etsy shop.
lately i’ve been feeling like there is just so much i want to do! 
with springtime here, i’m so excited to get into the garden and plant! i just booked my flight to england for the do what you love retreat! and i’m off and running with my e-course
with so many good things going on, sometimes i have to tell myself to take a step back and breathe.

for this painting, i was in love with the background. i don’t often keep my stenciled images showing front and center like this, but there was something so peaceful about that bird, i almost wanted it to be the main attraction. 
i pasted in all sorts of words and notes from sheet music. then i added layers of acrylic paint, ink, origami paper, charcoal and pastel for a mixed media effect full of lots and lots of layers!
to me, this owl is really a reflection of the bird. like a cloud in the sky, it’s their to remind him to always KEEP CALM.
