This piece has all of my favorite grungy goodness. The thick layers of vintage papers and the texture from the gesso and modeling paste just makes me smile. I also am using what might be my new favorite medium to get an antique aged look.
This piece also has a lot of meaning for me, I guess they all do…

Trusting Deeper… Some days I think I am a skeptic… a doubter. Not all days but when I’m feeling tired and worn out, the negative tapes create an orchestra in my head.
Trusting is one of the hardest thing for us (me) to do, especially when we have been hurt.
When we have been blindsided by betrayal, or when the hardest of life hits us. I know that I have put up so many walls… walls of protection… some are healthy and we will call those “boundaries” and some not so healthy.
But trust is crucial in growing healthy relationship, getting beyond the shallow surface interaction, into being known and loved, with caution and mindful thought we can, i can trust again. I am allowing my soul to trust deeper.
I’m writing this part of my story as “she is brave enough to trust” … ooh i feel a piece of art with that on it coming!
That’s why I thought this weeks photo was so appropriate, I shared in the video how odd I think this is coming from the city… people setting up farm stands in their front yard and TRUSTING people to do the right thing and pay for their goods.
I felt like I was sneaking around someones house… way outside my comfort level. But I did it and was just overcome with the thoughts that people are better than all the media makes them out to be, that there is decency and kindness and trust in more hearts than we think. I know there are the bad seeds (the cynic or the realist coming out) but honestly, we don’t focus on the good enough to erase the negative that plays in our minds, that keeps us from trusting and growing. The beauty like people helping in the midst of hurricanes, fires or flooding. People feeding and clothing those that don’t have them. People being honest to pay for what they take.
I pray that You and I will focus on the beauty in our world enough to allow trust to bloom.
Be Inspired, create and know that you are loved!
