Is it Love?

Art Inspiration Ideas

At times, I can’t wrap my head around Love. Still, I try. I did a few kind things for people quietly today. Shhh, the details don’t matter more than the obedience. This little painting was me loving the girl in me who wants to run away when life feels heavy. The cute part about this […]
