New Painting, New Book In Process ♥
Posted by KATIE BERGGREN on
3 bits to share today ♥♥♥
1) Wonder-Filled, a brand new painting (original sold, prints available)
2) Mommy Is Tired, an illustrated book in process
3) The Carry You With Me Collective
The 23rd painting in my Mindful Mothering Project is complete, and her name is Wonder-Filled! MMP is a fun project I’ve been doing for several years – I look in my submissions folder and start a new MMP painting whenever I feel the urge... my hubby originally had this idea :)
The Mindful Mothering Project allows YOU to submit your photo of gentle, mindful mothering, that may inspire a KmBerggren painting. If your photo is chosen, you will receive a free 12x12 inch print of the finished piece. I keep a folder full of submitted photos and grab what grabs me :)
You can also just ask me to create an original custom painting for you.
I’m making further process on the paintings for the Mommy Is Tired book!
The author, Lisa Aloi Morris, is rad to work with, and that makes the process of painting feel authentic. PLUS, her manuscript is SO sweet! I can’t wait for you to have this book in your hands!
When Lisa brought her Mommy Is Tired manuscript to me, I read it with chills. I instantly knew that I wanted to lend my time, heart and hands to this project.
I’m always open to hearing from authors, and to connect with someone and love their words is such a hope-filled joy!
If you want to build your collection of KmB illustrated books, here are the published ones: The Healing You Can Do, Carry You With Me and Mama's Milkies.
More of this project has been shared in my private Facebook Community, you can request to join :)
And from my friend Alanna Knobben, author of Carry You With Me, which I illustrated (see the recent interview between Alanna & I):
