Exquisite Moon June 20, 2016 17:07


I made this for you! 

I've been learning how to make animated gifs (I know, about a decade or so late..), so I thought it would be fun to show you my latest painting, "Exquisite Moon," in progress. Plus, sparkles in the end!

I am sorry to say that the original painting does not literally sparkle. But the moon is a gorgeous shiny rose-gold (rose-gold, that is an Official Art color for sure!) that I cannot stop looking at, and the little energy-spirit-nebulas around her body were so much fun to make.  

She would really, really like to come live with you!  She will enliven your walls and remind you to be your beautiful self.  You can see more and purchase "Exquisite Moon" right HERE.

Beautiful woman painting "Breathe" by Lea K. Tawd

I few days ago, I had a big plan for what I was going to write about for this post.

But right now, nothing sounds right.  With nearly 50 people dead and their mothers wringing the tears out of their own hearts. With another 50 hospitalized. With their families and friends, communities throughout the world crying our days away. Pulled towards the news trying to make sense of it all, finally turning the news off because there is no sense, only anger and sadness.

Forget my plans for what I was going to write.  I just want to share this painting to everyone who needs a reminder to breathe today, including myself.  The world is overwhelming right now.  

I do everything in my power to encourage my children to be themselves in every way. To let them know that I love them inside and out.  I try to keep my fears to myself because I don't want to hinder them.  But I am afraid.  Who knows what dangers they face as they go about their daily lives?  Give your children, your friends, your spouse or partner a hug.  Give yourself a hug.  Don't let the world stifle you.  


Remember to breathe.
