Slow Down

My theme this week: 

I once had a medium tell me that my late father and brother were both pleading with me to slow down, I shouldn't feel I need to do it all, etc.... It's been a hard thing to really embrace but I am trying. 

This week's focus: 

"The Meek" diptych - in progress, pre-embriodered beetles, moths and butterflies... 24" x 24" and 12" x 24" Acrylic, oil stick, gouache, ink, colored pencil on wood panel
