Johanna (left): For me, this picture reminds me of calm quiet moments in my home. I cherish stillness. It helps my mind to ease itself, it allows me the space that I need to think and to create. In this picture you can see in the background the door to my studio illuminated by the sun. The sun casts a bright sunny spot on the floor in the hallway. In the foreground, an antique chair from my mother in law, a painting we picked up when thrifting and our big blue t.v. hutch that we got 2nd hand that hides all of our electronics. This is my home, where I feel safe and protected.
Desiree (right): My favourite part about living in a house is the fact that we have such a gorgeous little property. For years we’ve been “second floor living without a yard” and the fact that I can now look outside to see the pretty blue porch, the gorgeous red sumac and all sorts of greenery thrills me beyond measure. Even now, in the depths of winter, I find beauty in the solitary branches – my sleeping garden. It’s a comforting & constant reminder that the brilliance of Spring is just barely in the distance.
