“It doesn’t interest me what you do for a living. I want to know what you ache for, and if you dare to dream of meeting your heart’s longing.

I want to know if you can see beauty even when it’s not pretty, every day, and if you can source your own life from its presence.

I want to know if you can live with failure, yours and mine, and still stand on the edge of the lake and shout to the silver of the full moon, “Yes!”

― Oriah Mountain Dreamer

Since we did one for my wall, Michelle wanted a painting for her wall too … So when I went there for the weekend, we whipped one up.

This was a flight of fancy and we didn’t know what he would become, just painting whatever came to mind in the moment. At the very end, we decided he looked best on his head … and realized he was a beautiful lake view, behind the trees. This is now him in all his glory …

I can’t wait to go back and choose a nice spot on the wall for him to live on and spread his joy!
