a little ditty.

i recently listened to the new feist album- metals…it is tremendous! the last song  especially stuck me though – you can watch this short preview video get it wrong, get it right (i mean, she’s playing with little goats- be still my heart!). i have listened to this song probably 100 times already! instantly the words  calmed me and that i wanted to see them everyday, not just hear them.

i have seen several inspiring ideas of people painting/writing  lyrics or special words onto an existing painting but never had words quite right to do so myself. but this song just moves me. i love it. so i had in mind that i needed to find a large painting so i could finish this project. since i thought that was a long shot, i decided that i could make do with a large canvas, it would just take much longer to finish and might not come out exactly how i wanted. the other day i was running errands and on a whim stopped into goodwill, just to see if there was by chance a large painting. well, there just so happened to be the perfect sized painting in the perfect colors, just perfect for my project!

frankie may be doubting my project


we will soon be moving a tall dresser into our bedroom, so i hung the painting high on the wall so it can be seen from bed- i can read it every morning when i wake up! i am so happy with how this turned out!

more bedroom re-do coming soon!
