do you see it? it’s a perfectly laid out dragonfly shape embedded into this found rock. so cool. i was at my friend kelly’s house recently and stumbled upon this beauty in her dining room. lucky girl.

i also stumbled upon this quote today and it had me stopping in my tracks for a moment:

“perfection consists not in doing extraordinary things, but in doing ordinary things extraordinarily well.” – angelique arnauld

yeah, the perfectionism that is starting to seep into my life has got to go. the not being able to wind down and relax at a moments notice has got to go. last nite, i was up until 2am reading the heartbreaking story of one woman, a recent inspiration to me. insightful. a beautiful writer (that left me with word and language envy). her story had me feeling downright silly for being so consumed with myself and my very, very simple complaints. the world is so much larger than me and my little life. i felt that last nite. a push to get over it, already. life is more. more forgiving. more depth. more, extraordinary. i want to feel all of that.

Hi, I'm Kelly Rae Roberts!

Before I picked up my first paintbrush at the age of 30, I was a medical social worker. I followed my whispers and started playing with paint and everything changed.

Now I’m a full-time artist, author and Possibilitarian, who helps women explore and nourish their creative souls.

A creative heart/life update

I went to Portland couple of weeks ago and had an experience that felt like a mixture of grief, awakening, and creative bursts all at once. Intense, illuminating, and ultimately really really GOOD. First, the grief. It's been so long since I've been back and I wasn't...
