Just like so many people I woke up today and yesterday to a pretty different world. I think most of us been emotional in some ways, even us who aren't Americans. No matter who we are, and what we believe in, this election is historical in many ways....not necessarily good ways, but we have to find a way to learn and cope and be positive. I don't think America has ever been as divided as it is now...and in this divide it can be easy to forget what unites us.

I want to take this moment to say how honored I am to wake up to my third daily devotion....art has to me always been a safe haven, an escape of some sort. That I would get such a special reminder in the middle of a tumult time, means so much. Art is one thing of many that unites us....A liberal and a conservative can look at the same painting...and bond over their appreciation of it. They might even feel the same emotions looking at it...a similar nostalgia. I do think we are more similar than we think, we are all human beings, with hopes...dreams...and I do think most of us are good and want to do good.

It always does blow me away to have people appreciate what I do, it's a surreal sometimes overwhelming feeling. I have grown in confidence and courage the last year. I always been the girl painting in the corner of my room and never really showing it to anybody. Thank you so so much for this honor.... especially thank you to the talented, kind and amazing  :iconerikshoemaker: who made it happen. 

Thank you guys so much, for the love and kindness, I appreciate every single one of you.
