This year my birthday fell on my boys’ first day of school and as I usually choose to spend my birthday with my family, I had no idea what I wanted to do with myself. And I started to think about the phrase “spend the day”. The idea of time as currency, and that we choose how we spend it - it’s pretty powerful stuff. It makes you think about what is really important to you. And with my family otherwise occupied I knew that what I really wanted was to drive to my hometown and spend the day (there it is again) with my best friend. So that’s just what I did. And of course it was so lovely just to be with her. But the act of intentionally deciding ahead of time that of all the things I could do on my birthday, the thing I most wanted was to spend my time with her - that awareness is what made it all the more special.
This is a framed mixed media painting on a 1.5" gallery wrapped canvas. The simple float frame is made from unfinished maple. This piece is titled and signed on the back and will arrive wired and ready to hang.
