print to my Etsy shop. I am so happy with how it turned out. (I hope it doesn't sound like bragging to say that. It's not every day that I finish a painting and it just feels right.)
I did the painting of a collection of small and precious objects: beach stones (one with a heart shape), tiny shells, green and amber sea glass--all from a past holiday in Maine. I also included a sparrow's feather, a bud from a tree in my backyard and a couple of pieces of garden twine. Then I did something quite different for me. I added text to my painting and I decided to write the words in French.
Most of you know this by now. I live in a bilingual household. I am anglophone. My husband is francophone. Sometimes the French words are prettier than the English ones and, in this case, they even rhyme! 'La terre' is the earth, 'la mer' is the ocean or sea and l'air is...well I think you have that one figured out.
Thanks to everyone who left the lovely comments about Chloé's photography in the last post. She was proud and happy to read them. :)
