Today is the second anniversary of my daily posts on MyOneBeautifulThing.com. This makes 730 consecutive days of blogging. I can hardly believe it! Like all good things, it feels both like I just started and also like I’ve always been doing it.
I’m having a blast, and I really love what I’ve created here. But the real standout for me is how generous all of you have been; with your time, with your attention, with your likes and comments and follows. From the bottom of my judgy, sarcastic, sentimental, silly heart, I thank you!
Today, it seemed fitting to share the work of someone else who’s committed to creating something every day. These are the gorgeous, teensy paintings of Brooke Rothshank.
“In 2014 I had a 7-year-old, a 2-year-old, and was having trouble finding time to complete my detailed miniature compositions. I decided to paint one small object a day for a year in effort to become more productive and less frustrated. Doing a daily painting pushed me to let go of making each piece too precious. I was able to paint a piece and if I didn’t like it, no problem! There would be another chance to try tomorrow.”
If these are less precious than her previous work, I can’t even imagine what those looked like. Enjoy these beautiful, tiny works of art, some of which are available for purchase on Etsy!
