Some colorful shells in the shop today. I’ve always been a shell collector; I have little broken pieces and large tropical ones all over my house. My house is adorned with plants, shells, and driftwood – all bringing the outside in, and reminding me of the places that make me happy.
These drawings were the first pieces I made of my Light & Color series, but I’ve been saving them for a sunny day. It actually fits nicely with this week, as my birthday is tomorrow and I’ve been thinking a lot lately of hermit crabs finding larger shells to fit in as they grow. I’ve also recently re-potted many of my house plants since they’ve been thriving well. It seems like a new chapter is upon me.
I’m turning 25 tomorrow, and though I know I am still young, I feel as though I were a small hermit crab newly moved into a large shell. There’s room to grow, but I’m not sure how it will fit on me. What will this year have in store for me? What was your 25th year like?
