the perfect storm

Screen shot 2013-03-13 at 12.15.58 PM

This morning I was painting waves.
The house was in order; the babies, quiet; the creativity, flowing.  The sea was calm.

Fast-forward two hours.
A hurricane appears to have swept through our living room; the babies, refusing to nap, are stripping, screaming and throwing stuffed animals;  the creativity, at a complete stand-still.  The sea is treacherous.

Working from home with toddlers...kinda like a day at the beach.  Kinda.

A beautiful set of waves, despite the ruckus : )

Although this is really simple, it somehow catched my eye at once! It calms me somehow :) You managed to channel the calm atmosphere around you into your picture!

Wow. I think we are long lost sisters. I just stumbled on your comment on my blog, and this first post reads my last name! I'm so excited to read more.

And much like the sky after a storm, they probably will be sunshiny in the morning! Maybe...

Love the waves, they make me happy. Hope they'll work into something on the etsy store!
