I have always liked art. I have never really known much about it, I am ashamed to admit, I guess you could blame that on ignorance. I am not artistic or creative, and have prusued other interests. A few months ago P bought this print for me, and I thought it was simply beautiful. I set it on the bookshelf in our living room, then time and time again I find my eye being drawn to this painting. It is by an artist named Kelly Rae Roberts. All of her work is somewhat whimsical and feminine, yet it still has a striking presence in a room. What I like most about this piece is the quote on the girls dress. It reads, "the whispers of our lives want us to take notice. they may just be whispers, small voices tucked deep inside the pockets of our hearts, but we must hold their possibilities close to our chests and allow them to step into the light."
P gave this to me while I was training for the marathon, and I was in a place where I was rediscovering some of myself that I had once lost.
I am so greatful that P understands my journey and is willing to spur me along on the way.
