My first painting of the year. Of eight people who began 2022, together.
A beautiful quote from Elene Barnabe, “Our hands are the antennas of our soul. When you move them by sewing, cooking, painting, touching the earth or sinking it into the earth, they send signals of caring to the deepest part of you and your soul calms down.”
Painting a picture of people you love does not come easily, but it is a very satisfying way to spend a few cold, winter days.
We started the year off together. During this time, we walked, and we talked, and we took photos in the forest. Looked for animal tracks, and listened to the quiet.
Memories flooded in, of long hikes, treasures found, large mud puddles, and a crazy little river.
And always coming home in capable, proficient hands.
