Fly & Send Your Cares to the World.

   So, bloggers, you may remember my word for 2012 is "yes." However, this simple word has morphed into soemthing so meaningful to such a short time. I have always struggled with accepting me for well, me. I have really never thought I was good enough for anybody, which has recently made me feel like a doormat. This being said, I have decided that my "YES" will stand for "saying yes to me." & I mean the amazing, funny, tall, smartical (yes, it is a word), beautiful, me.
   This idea of the wings came to me when I was looking through some blogs on self portraits; I really liked the concept and I kind of turned it into my own :) I am planning to leave the wings drawing up in my room, and for everyday I say "yes" to me or step out of my normal shell, I will write in the voided space between the wings, in them, and all around them. & at the end of 2012 I want to be able to look back and be able to see all of my "me" accomplishments of the year :)
   People of the blogging world, I encourage to accept yourself as you are because we are all unique for a reason. <3
Until next time,
McKenna K.

Hey Bloggers!
Recently, I have had a "revelation" so to speak, with my oil paintings. I was thinking over my many projects one day, and all of these amazing ideas began to flow out of the abyss, I call my brain. I quickly wrote them down, and I am so excited to begin the journey of completing these amazing paintings & share them with the rest of the blogging world. :)
Considering that oil paintings take (what seems like) FOREVER to dry, I am always starting another painting. & then another one. & then another one. However, I never seem to go back and finish the ones I began so long ago.
This particular painting, started out as something COMPLETELY different and morphed into on of my amazing ideas that came to me. It is very close to my heart, and has many deeper meanings within every last brush stroke.
So, as I mark one of my great things to do off of my painting list, I wish you all the best with your endeavors whether they be artistic or not. ;*

Until next time,
McKenna K.

Bring in the New Year :)

Hey bloggers :)
I am beyond excited for this new year :) I already have the feeling that is going to be interesting and eye-opening.
So, my word for 2012 is YES. I am the kind of person that tends to hold back from new things that are outside my bubble. However, I am determined that this year I am going to change that. :) No more holding back & no more second guessing.
So, make this year an awesome one bloggers :)

Until next time,
McKenna K.
