RAD AF canvas print

My script lettering artworks are created by carefully hand painting words and phrases on to paper with black ink using special Japanese Sumi brushes.   Sumi-e painting is deeply rooted in the creative practice of  Zen Buddhism.  When I began learning how to paint words with these types of brushes I found the practice incredibly frustrating.  It is not as easy as it may look to get the curves and loops of letters onto paper in an aesthetically pleasing form.  But, because I am a big believer in the power of words and because who doesn't love some positive phrasing as artwork, I pressed on with my practice.  Eventually, my letters got better and better, but what really happened was that my heart was transformed.  Through the simple act of painting positive words every day, I changed my internal dialogue from self-defeating to self-empowering.  And I want to share that with you.

Words of love and positivity remind us of who we are and where we're going They are incredibly important allies in life.  We need them.  

This piece is a bold + simple reminder that YOU ARE RAD.  AF!

It is also a nod to the hip and current lingo of my son's generation.  It makes me giggle and it brings me joy, because sometimes an appropriately (and tastefully) dropped F-BOMB is what gets the job done, yo. 

Hey, YOU are RAD.  YOU are AWESOME. AF.  Heck to the YA!  The world is unfolding to show you the beauty you possess.  NOW GO GET AT IT!
