Mindful Mothering Project update ~ Storing Lettuce Heads (seriously, ha ha!)

Last week I started the 19th painting in the Mindful Mothering Project (MMP). The MMP invites you to submit photos that may inspire a brand new painting. Interested?

Growing Calm – Passions Beyond Painting

Painting motherhood is one of my main personal passions ~ I’ve relished in it for 15 years, it’s one of my daily nourishments.
