Midwest Living: Let’s Talk Art

Oh my goodness, we have been so busy in the studio this summer that I almost forgot to tell you…MY WORK IS FEATURED IN A LARGE MAGAZINE — Midwest Living May/June edition!

 

Midewest Liv­ing, May/June 2017

 

My favorite quote from the arti­cle:

Fall in love The art in your home should do more than dec­o­rate. It should res­onate, reflect­ing your per­son­al­i­ty, expe­ri­ences and val­ues. So don’t sec­ond-guess a piece that brings you joy. If the col­or or style doesn’t seem to fit with your décor, just know there’s always a way to make it work.”

You can read the rest for your­self here: Mid­west Liv­ing, May/June 2017, Let’s Talk Art, page 74–81

A Moment’s Pause

Life was not intend­ed to be sim­ply a round of work, no mat­ter how inter­est­ing and impor­tant that work may be. A moment’s pause to watch the glo­ry of a sun­rise or a sun­set is soul-sat­is­fy­ing, while a bird’s song will set the steps to music all day long.” Lau­ra Ingalls Wilder, The Farm Jour­nal­ist

The Artist’s Eyes


To any artist, wor­thy of the name, all in nature is beau­ti­ful, because his eyes, fear­less­ly accept­ing all exte­ri­or truth, read there, as in an open book, all the inner truth.” —  Auguste Rodin

How it’s Remembered


Per­haps every­thing is not how it is, but how it’s remem­bered.” — Denis Nor­den

The Real Things Haven’t Changed


The real things haven’t changed. It is still best to be hon­est and truth­ful; to make the most of what we have; to be hap­py with sim­ple plea­sures; and have courage when things go wrong.”  ― Lau­ra Ingalls Wilder

Circle of Compassion


Our task must be to free our­selves by widen­ing our cir­cle of com­pas­sion to embrace all liv­ing crea­tures and the whole of nature and its beau­ty.” — Albert Ein­stein

The Highest Appreciation


As we express our grat­i­tude, we must nev­er for­get that the high­est appre­ci­a­tion is not to utter words, but to live by them. — John F. Kennedy
