Sometimes you use ALL the brands of paint!
As much as I’ve grown to love video editing, there still is nothing that beats painting and printmaking!
After spending several weeks working on video production and editing, I’m finding myself really missing my fine art practice. Solution: prep some watercolor paper for sun prints and get to creating!!
After a stint of cloudy days, we are enjoying the heatwave in Omaha. Sun printing and the a/c at the library are just the icing on the cake.
Yesterday marked the three year anniversary of my husband and I walking away from a spiritually abusive community that we had been a part of for over a decade. Since then, we have experienced SO MUCH grace, healing, and love from just so many people. To honor these three years, I thought I would share the three biggest lessons I’ve learned:
1. Tell the truth about your story (and especially those times of trauma). 2. Forgive yourself (you can’t forgive those who hurt you until you give that same grace to yourself for staying in a toxic situation for so long).
3. Shine light (affirm other’s stories out loud and online). We know as we celebrate with good books and baked goods there are so many others caught in abusive cultures. We pray for your safe escape and for joy along your journey back to wholeness. XOXO .
This week George, a baby Beta Fish, joined the Loewens Pride. He likes playing with his marimo ball and is thankful our cat is too old to be interested in him. 😉
In between making batches of rice, I’m trying to get my cyanotypes mounted so I can use them for some acrylic skin experiments!
When you love to propagate plants, you eventually have to find other homes for them.
Twice a week I have just one little at home so I’m trying to find the whole get work done/ not spoil him / do fun things together balance. Today was a nice mix of video editing, exploring, printmaking & having extra snuggles on the couch. Man, I’m ready for fall.
My husband’s cycling team put on their first gravel ride yesterday so I was out with my camera practicing. Learning a new method of storytelling is so rewarding but not without its challenges. Hope your weekend was adventure-filled, too!
