I'm doing my best to stay optimistic today. I feel a bit like the world is crashing down.. or it will be soon. The funny thing about the world crashing down, is it happens so fast, and everything falls apart. The worst part is.. building it all back up. It will never be quite the same. Forgive me for not going into too much detail. I like the way my makeup looked this morning, I don't want to redo it. I'm just venting a bit.

The best way to help me stay optimistic and happy is to paint.  
I paint cheerful reminders to myself.
With happy words,
bright colors,
and smiles.

Do you need a happy reminder? 
Prints and originals will be in the shop by this evening.


  1. Awh! Your artwork is so lovely. I love the girls and their hair. Looks so dreamy!

    Xo Chloe.

  2. I hope that all is ok with you! I can understand how tough it is to go through tough times. My world was turned upside down and I had to completely rebuild my life. While some things aren't the same, other things are so much better and more fulfilling. Look for the good things and don't mourn the losses too long. Much love sweetie!

  3. Awww. I love the "hug a tree" one. I hope things get better for you, Rachael. Try to keep smiling, life has its ups and downs, but there's ALWAYS an UP after the down... xo
