Olives + Olympian Crown

Where did I get the idea to paint a olive leaf crown? Maybe it was in my research? I’ve been going over the places where I’ve noticed hearts. The one I keep drawing and trying to get right are the white iron chairs at Disneyland.

I sitll want to draw and paint a pink chair perhaps. I love Disneyland because every little detail is reminder of fun. play, love, and magic. It is easy to walk the park and feel Walt’s words.

“If you dream it. You can achieve it.”

That gives me a whole new idea for this chair. AND so Olympians used to wear crowns of olive leaves. I can only imagine how it feels to win. You work hard. Endurance is beyond words. You focus and you go where no one else can, above what you can do.

No we are not all Olympians or Walt Disney but as teachers, artists, dreamers, Imagineers, Doctors, Lawyers, Officers, Firefighters, friends, mothers, daughters….we all are olympians in one form or another.

Kindness is golden. We can do way more than what we give ourselves credit for. Here’s my gratitude for all who have been kind to me. Here’s my gratitude for all who inspire my work and for those who deter it. For it is you who give me the greatest lesson…to keep on.
