make a difference

One of the most beautiful aspects of life is simply to create. Imagine how wonderful it is to be able to bring something new into the world that wasn’t previously there; to be able to make a difference. Isn’t it amazing? What would life be if weren’t able to create? The universe would remain constant.

I thought a bee themed painting of mine would be perfect for #throwbackthursday this week! 🐝This little lady is “The Beekeeper.”  I painted her in 2013 for my “Spilled Milk” Exhibition with an important message in mind about being conscious of our impact on the environment 🌎 so I wanted to share her and my motivation behind creating her! 😄 Because of our actions, Honeybees, and other pollinators, are being negatively affected. 😔 If we’re not careful, we’ll lose our natural world and all we’ll have left of it will be imitations like The Beekeeper’s white porcelain stag. 🦌 I think we all have the potential to help the environment so we should try our best to make a difference! 🌎💚 Besides planting seeds, buying organic, and recycling, what are some ways you lovelies like to try to help the environment and make it a more friendly place for our fuzzy little bee friends? 🤔 I’d love to start a conversation about this so we can learn from each other so please share all your suggestions in the comments below! 😊💖

The feeling you have deep down is right. Your life does matter and you were meant to do incredible things in this life. It may be deep-rooted, forgotten through your years in this world, but if you dig deep enough, you can feel it. Deep down, you already know this.
