sweet bella painting

Aug 5, 2009 | Life in Progress

earlier this summer i asked my friend sarah if she would paint us a portrait of our doggie, bella. anyone who know us knows that bella is our life. we rescued her over nine years ago from wretched conditions when she was 6 weeks old and we’ve loved her every step of the way. soon after we rescued her, she was diagnosed with a severe bleeding disorder (similar to hemophilia), making owning her quite an adventure (complete with countless emergency vet visits, lots of blood stains everywhere, doggie blood transfusions, and on an on). but boy do we love her. as i type this, she is snoring at my feet with her giant airplane ears in full view. anyway, i totally love + adore the painting sarah did of bella. i placed it so that it sits on our bookshelves in our living room. thank you, sarah!!
in other news, i feel like telling the truth. and the truth is is that i’m all mixed up over here. feeling like i need to recalibrate after many long weeks of business work, like i need to get balanced again. i hate this feeling but it’s also what motivates me to make a change. i suppose i’m in in-between land with a few moments of tears as i try and work myself out and re-evaluate what i want to do. also working on big plans for upcoming travel (which makes me so happy). so yes, confused and off kilter after a big wave of release last week. the ebb and flow…there it is again.
hope you guys are well. i’ll be back soon with a painting show + tell.
ps – i added a necklace to the shop (the CREATE necklace – a fave) today with more to arrive soon. loving having my own shop vs my old etsy shop (so far).
pps – please welcome our newest sponsor, artist valerie lorimer!

Sending much love,
