Just a little reminder. WHY? Because I am working on a project (the polar bear art show) that has potential to do really spectacularly, amazing things. I feel that in my heart. It's already introduced me to some of the most amazingly interesting people (AND BEARS!!). The challenge is navigating some of the strange politics that come with world's most awesome predator. If that sounds really crazy - it's because IT REALLY, TRULY IS. A bunch of grown people with a fondness for bears... and a thousand differing opinions of who, when and how help them. REGARDLESS of that mumbo - I posted this little graphic to remind myself to follow my heart - TO THE END OF IT. I think that could mean so many awesome things... to the end of the adventure, until it's not a good idea anymore, all your entire life, until winds change, until your heart slows.
I am not a politcal person. I'm just an artist who loves polar bears and believes they deserve to be celebrated. I cannot wait to do that. With style + pride. I want to inspire + learn. My dream is to bring together a celebration of people who would like to do that, too.
Are you with me?
Today: I am getting my fingers dirty. If you follow me on Instagram (@kalbarteski) you will see the different types of projects I was working on this week... from lines (a special penguin family for Elise and Paul's eagerly anticipated little girl!) to paint sketches and a little kitchen makeover. Good times around here. Good times. New prints in my ARTshop next week. Woot!
