Music is life… art is life. The power that flows through us from a heart-touching song, or an eye-opening painting or sculpture… that is not something to be ignored.
When a song touches me deep, I snag it, I save it for a day when I need it. Music lifts me from my depths and sends my mind and heart travelling down new roads.
I know you are there with me, feeling from deep within, while a song takes you away… makes you dig deep into your own life/memories/desires/inspirations.
In my life there have been many song-crushes. Fewer artist-crushes, which I find interesting. I imagine that since I’m a visual creator, I seek out the audible creators that move my soul.
My current song-crushes that I hope will move you, too:
If you want to know what fires me up in the studio… the music above is a good example
I’ve been busy in the studio working on commissioned paintings, surprises for special moms (and some dads!) ~ I’ve sunk in deep while standing at the easel, hours and hours floating away on happiness. I couldn’t ask for a better job. Thank you to all of you who make this possible. I appreciate you so much.
A couple announcements:
I’ve got new merch – lovely new art shirts, check them out here for more styles/colors and photos: www.Represent.com/store/KmBerggren
I’m closing my studio for a week starting Saturday – each year I do this, a tiny sabbatical to leave it all behind and head out in other directions. I still draw in my journal while the studio door is closed. A good break feels so healthy and re-invigorating. Orders placed before Saturday will process/ship before I close
I will have several paintings waiting for me when I open the doors again. Including the newest Mindful Mothering Project painting. You can go on Facebook or Instagram and search “#KmBMMP” to see what’s up.
Thank you for following along!
Love & Sincerely, Katie
