hand lettering ventures

 

I love good quotes and I love hand lettering… so once in a while I attempt to beautifully write a favorite quote. I had to draw everything out in pencil first and then used watercolor.

Don’t you just love this quote? 🙂

Its wise words relate to so many situations and I can think of a lot of things that this quote applies to in my life. Especially in times of change it’s important to ask, step forward and go after what you really want!

A few days ago, I visited one of my neighbors who illustrates books with pretty watercolors of plants and flowers. She gave me a little print of her ‘strawberries’ painting which you can see in the photo on top of the old Roberts radio… it’s such a cute print!

I’ve had the drift wood stick for many years and it has ‘lived’ with me in various apartments. It’s very faded and a few weeks ago I finally had the courage to paint some tribal white patterns on it. I hope you like it! 🙂 My sister gave me the bright blue tea light glasses for Christmas. She knows I love everything blue, so naturally this was a perfect present.

So, my friends, live by these wise words…. I’ll try!
