Awesome! When you do a commission piece do you come up with the text also?

I love the idea of expanding your vision to see everything - especially those things that are hidden in our hearts.

Possibility...the air is buzzing with it lately. Such a gorgeous painting, Rachel. Thank you for always reminding me of what matters---for making my insides dance.

I love you,

Ohhh yes...goodness, this takes me back. I remember a Girl Scout trip to the Arch, clanking our way up to the top in a strange and musty elevator car... then peeking through the window at the ground so far, far below. I felt limitless.

Beautiful, Rachel.

Becky Shander said...
