words of wisdom

IMG_4964A quote by Chinese philosopher Lao Tzu has been on my mind lately. IMG_4934 IMG_4937 IMG_4942I spent an afternoon down by the river and decided to start this little watercolour piece. The following morning in the studio I enjoyed illustrating the text with white gouache, and adding a bunch of intricate purple shadows. I created this piece purely for myself, with the sole intention of just putting these inspiring words to paper… however, since completing it, I’ve realized there are a lot of beloved quotes that I would like to illustrate, and it’s always wonderful to share found wisdom with others. Therefore, this is the first (of hopefully many) little mixed media pieces that I’ll be creating about wise words.
