Recently discovered a watercolor painting I created in my teens. The old photograph I referenced to paint this portrait is still in my possession. The photo is my favorite because we looked like we were happy, and having good old fashion fun. Luckily my sister doesn’t read my blog or she might object to showcasing this painting. Anyway, I love how we looked and probably how we felt at this age ( 4 & 7?), we were goofy kids without a care in the world. Those days were magical, by that I mean, we lived without limitations, lived fully, lived without body issues, lived for play and loved fully (and fought fully). Some days felt like time would stand still. Looking back helped me to realize what I need in the present day. My time should be spent living fully in the moment, do what I love daily, always keep a sense of wonder, love deeply and maybe dance silly wearing a swim float occasionally just to keep things real! Oh the memories!
Dedicated to my lovely, talented bossy little sister, who will always be my best friend. The original singing and dancing Libra’s!
