you should be kissed (and often)

One of my all time favorite places to be is Coffee Roasters, located in gorgeous Florence, Oregon. This weekend I felt so lucky to have a coffee date there. I could literally stay for hours, lost in the funky vibrant culture there. Coolest artwork, best coffee, most amazing views of the water.

If you haven't been there yet, you definitely should. Hoping that someday soon I will get to display some artwork there.

In other news! I am getting closer every day to selling my artwork on Etsy. This is a long time dream of mine, and one that has always slightly scared me! This time I am vowing to never, ever give up...

Here is my latest painting. The text reads: you should be kissed, and often (by someone who knows how). Enjoy!
