I spent the afternoon sitting on a rock in the ocean painting. Not a bad way to spend the day! I love painting outside, and hopefully the weather will cooperate so I can do a lot more of it in the next few months! Thanks @jeremybibaud for the pic! 💕
When I tell people that I have had 9 jobs post-college they look at me amazed. Looking at in on a surface level you can say I hate my job (the constraints of it all), the field I work in etc. but in deeper thought it was probably because I didn't feel like I was making an impact, ending up frustrated. When we impact people's lives regardless if it's 1 person or 10 it feels really good inside. It's what keeps us motivated to keep coming back & why so many of us seek to do something for the greater good, the health of the world. 🌎
In a corporate job, it's a little bit harder because you want to feel like you are impacting the life of or lives of people who are genuine, or a boss who has the potential to be a great leader. And when you can't or are constrained it's really miserable. 😩
Throughout my 9 jobs, there was only 1 that I really loved & previous to that I blamed everything else around it but when I actually took a minute to explore why, it was not only that I was empowered and given the freedom to make a difference, but that same freedom I had to explore and create positively impacted me as well.🤩
It's funny how impact works because when you feel like you are actually making an impact on someone else your OWN actions also impact yourself which turns into being grateful, motivated and inspired. 💡
Do you feel like when you're being an impact you are also impacted?💭

Spent all day working on it. It makes me so happy when the image on my mind matches the painting. 😊
I want to add a little bit more highlight on the clouds and then I think I'm happy with clouds.
It's very cold here in Estonia. -10 degrees. ❄️Today I didn't open the window when I was painting and now I have a headache. I will go for a walk to get some fresh air. Hope I will survive this cold 😀
I hope its warmer where you are! 😊
Here’s a quick little diy. Make your own pencil holders to dress up your desk. A little spray paint and some washi tape transformed these plastic vitamin containers. Now my daughter can *hopefully* keep those art supplies on the desk and not scattered about her room. 🙄

Yesterday's warm weather and sunshine has us all hopped up on vitamin D and we're feeling unapologetically good about life. Thinking about this upcoming summer and dreaming about all the different fires we'll build and all the friends we'll have gather around. #campfires#community#creativelife
Ever have one of those days where you wake up and you’re thinking, “yep, not my day”? I woke up this morning feeling as big as a 🏠 and annoyed that Hank (Great Dane) tossed and turned🙄, licked himself🙄 and stood up to shake his loud AF collar 🙄 all night.
The old Brooke would have skipped her workout because what’s the point, I already feel large and in charge 🙃. Then I would proceed to eat anything and everything I saw - because why not 🤷♀️.
BUT I got my 🍑 up and pushed play! It might not be my day (round #2 because yesterday was rough too 🤦♀️) but I will still show up because the future Brooke will thank the current annoyed - big as a 🏠 Brooke for not giving up when she really wanted to.
Day 36/80. Didn’t die. Sore AF. Constantly eating 🤷♀️. Progress not perfection 😘.
Do something today that your future self will thank you for!

Anyone else have ultra comfy clothes they love to snuggle in when being creative? I've had this oversized #GAP hoodie best part of a decade and it's still my all-time favourite comfy 😊

Thanks to @meganwintersdesign "The MW version of the “Ribbon Staircase” ...featuring intermittently placed solid brass balls anchoring the handrail, heavenly white plaster grounding the ribbon stair structure and black lacquered grass cloth walls completing the drama."
A lot of you have questions on how I do my drips and blending with this type of piece. This is just the first layer and I will do about four more layers and let them dry in between. Next I’ll add the gold leaf and then another layer of paint over some of the gold leaf.
