I have a commissioned art piece that has been on my to-do board for well over a year. When they say: "no hurry" it can be the kiss of death. Or at least procrastination at it's worst.

so I started with a brand new spanking can....
and ended up with this flower child.
So it will go to market this afternoon.. I decided if it doesn't sell, I will put it on our deck for a recycle can/bottle receptacle for our deck parties!
okay work is calling me.. tons of orders! no time to play!

The details of this piece cannot be given justice in this photo. But I have come to really love this piece. She seems a bit timid to me. But she is holding fast to her heart. The words in the title
above are stamped above the flowers that are floating around her.
For me, it has been a life long journey to speak out loud. I have always walked a path of
empathy for my fellow journey mates. But also feel the importance of not keeping quiet. I was raised to sit down, shut up and not rock the boat. Probably the same way my parents were raised. Children should be seen and not heard. I think, thankfully, that ideology is becoming
less prevalent in today's world... somewhat.. surely not enough.
So I own my thoughts and my words. And speak out when I see the need. But also I hold dear to me the times when I choose not to speak, silence is golden, thus the golden heart she is holding.
With age comes wisdom. ta
She is now available for sale at my etsy shop. Does she speak to you?

note: turn off the music on the roll below to the right.. and then turn your volume up high.. and open your heart.
I am often amazed by what comes my way at the most needed moment. When the wind blows through your life, upsetting things, and you grasp hard at what gives you strength, and afterwards you sit still and try to put things right again. The exhaustion of the storm leaves you tired and raw.
And out of the blue, along comes a gift to touch your inner part and help you heal.. gratefully blessed, thank you. Staying in the light.
And, I wanted to share this with you.

~I have never seen these before, will have to research~
edit: Looked this flower up: Green Gentian also known as Monument Plant, Deer's Ears, and Elkweed. I have heard of Elkweed before but don't think I have ever seen it bloom.
columbines, of course
Hope you have a marvelous Monday, because I know all will be well for you too.
ps I took this original art and decided to turn it into a new design for Lunar's lineup.
you can see for yourself!
