Thankful {things I love} Thursday ...

I love ♥ walking into my little Sparrow Studio
early in the morning...
Looking down at my art table * paint brushes* paints and supplies*
taking my paint splattered apron down from it's hook
tying it around my waist
twinkle lights turned on
candles lit
music playing softly
curtains opened wide {and windows slightly ajar recently letting in a fresh breeze }
I love to start my larger canvas pieces
by writing words/thoughts/stories
on them ♥
while the layers of paint will cover them
a few words may be slightly visible {if you look close enough}

well loved brushes
jars of water
{every Full Moon, I leave a jar of water out to be infused}
this one from our recent Full Pink April Moon
a new story to be told ...
a new painting waiting to unfold ...
Newly listed in my Etsy shop
Ellory
"If you have never been called
a defiant
incorrigible
impossible woman ...
have faith ...
there is time yet"
~Clarissa Pinkola Estes~

Thankful {things I love} Thursday ...
a freshly, unsealed canvas ♥
~Have a wonderful Thursday~
