I have had some great days. My days have been peppered with Eric Carle's Brown Bear Brown Bear and some Kevin Henkes Birds thrown into the mix with the little one. I have also been spending time with my oldest child and making art.
I love when I find the balance between being a mom and a working artist.
I took some time to spend with my oldest son sans the baby. My boy thanked me for it while at dinner and said the loveliest thing. “Mom I savor these moments, when it is just you and me.” Sweet kid. Just hearing this makes life so wonderful and joyous.
My heart, silent with love.
|Angie Lewin article in Handmade Living • Angie Lewin Linocut Card, Scarista on my desk|
During our outing we made a magazine stop of course because my oxygen was running low, you know me and mags!
I picked up the latest issue of Handmade Living and Vogue Living Australia. Both never fail to inspire me.
Handmade Living was a must have because one of
my favorite artists was interviewed in it, her name is Angie Lewin. Angie is a printmaker from the UK.
Her linocut prints are so gorgeous.
Graphic yet softened by their setting in nature. Her plant forms are delightful. She has a fabric line that can be found at St.Jude's Fabric and her designs can be found in cards and noteboooks and pillow covers as well. She founded the St.Jude's Fabric company with her husband. I keep one of her cards at my desk, it just lights me up.
Here she is at work.
Take a minute to enjoy the video.
Love the process.
Here is her website:
