ok so it has come time for a little change in my art world. i see myself drifting away from the peace owl character more and more and painting what is in my heart more and more and that is the sea and surfing. Don't worry the peace owl is not going away he is just one part of my art and my heart so you will still see him but my main focus will be surf art and inspirational quote art, as I have been doing. I want to continue to spread peace & love but with lots of stoke mixed in. I hope you like the direction I am heading and I hope you continue to inspire me to do what I do with the sharing of your smiles & joy. I am starting the change of name with my instagram which was hello_birdy the new name is now: surfybirdy. So if you are on instagram you can start by following me there. This name will be incorporated with my new shirts I have printed and the new artwork to come. enjoy & stay stoked.

always love: i really cherish the ones around me so much, i just want to make sure they know i am always here for them, sometimes i feel they may not need me bc i am just me but if anyone ever felt alone or sad for any reason i'd hope to always be there to help a buddy feel better on bad days because we all get them and we all just need that smile or shoulder to turn that feeling around, theres lots of good around you just have to keep searching when it gets harder to see, i just want to make sure i am that for others, and if i get lost sometimes too i can have that from others too. keep shining.
live simply: i enjoy living simply and i want to continue to keep it simple, live with less, eat healthy/ local/ green. learn more recipes & cook more. continue to recycle & produce little waste.
work/ art: i still am at the same dredded 'office job' place that i mention escaping year after year. i must learn to accept it for now and continue to make the best of it. it is a job and it keeps me living w a roof over my head. keep doing my art on the side and hopefully be able to eventually have a part time 'office job' or find a place to work with kids or a creative type job. do a few craft shows a year and also find times to play in the sea because those are my happy places: the sea & creating.
travel: this past year i did travel some (puerto rico & places around my home state) but i would like to go more places this year, some surf trips with long waves that never seem to end, tropical days that never seem to end, i want more of that in the coming year
happy new year to you birdys. i hope you had a wonderful 2013 & i hope this new year brings lots of magic to your life & all around. enjoy your days!! peace & love.
