Heritage Craft Acrylic Paint

Funnily enough, her name is Frida

I did this rat study – my first time painting on MDF board and I loved it – and was just going to prop it up in my studio… that was until the rat’s mom saw it and had to have it.

I sent it home to Mama Rat and she posted the most beautiful response to it; a response that was a helpful reminder as to why art is not just art for me, but rather my purpose, my fulfilment, and is the most meaningful thing I could be doing with my time right now.

Along with this photo, see the inscription below:


This is my soul mate Frida. She has been sick so I said to her yesterday morning that I wish more than anything we could be in each others lives forever. They have tiny little life spans and it kills me.

Today the beautiful painting Cole did of her – as a surprise – was delivered to me. I don’t think I’ve ever been this happy about an artwork and now Frida can live forever.

This kind of feedback is very heartwarming and motivating, and the reason I love painting for others.
