When I started to create this piece, I was thinking of using more of the river picture that I had, but as I began working, I felt really free to make it more abstract and just use the pebbles.
It was so peaceful and relaxing, which is where I needed to be after a super busy week and it was also the inspiration behind this.
I just got a new book called Peace is a Practice by Morgan Harper Nichols and the first page of the first chapter was so good that this is what came out.
She quoted one of my favorite old Hymns and talked about finding peace.
That peace can still be found when things are not peaceful, when things are hard… but …. it takes practice.
I share all about it in the video. I hope you enjoy the project. Always know that you are loved!
