Breath © 2013 2.5x3.5"
I know this isn't like most of the stuff I do. I needed to just breath though. I needed to just create without the planing without all of the fine details. I needed to get out of my head, and release all of the creatures that were swimming in my mind.

Sometimes it is so easy to for me to get caught up in self-doubt an critisism. So I knew I had a to make an ATC for the monthly swap. (Thank goodness for these swaps they keep me painting even when life is sooo crazy! They have really been a blessing in disguise for me. J)

So I just went for it and grabbed the things that were closest to me, and just started to create. Releasing the scrambled thoughts of what is to come, job applications, test scores, insecurities, and faith struggles, to just be in the moment. Breathing and moving, creating. This was the end result.

This is a painting I created during student teaching at my elementary placement.

I created this piece as a thank you gift for my wonderful mentor teacher. I am so blessed to have been placed with her and in that school! I will feel forever indebted to her and my time there!

Thank you!
