An ancient proverb reminds us that laughter is good medicine for the soul. It reduces stress, benefits our immune system, relaxes us, and is a natural anti-depressant. We all have trials, worries and difficult times, but laughter is one of the great gifts God gives us.

Getting there but not there. I came home from teaching today, fed the boys afternoon tea, sat on the couch and tried to will myself to get up and head into the studio. But an hour later I woke feeling flooded with guilt. Because now rolls into walk the dog/make dinner/kids bath, bed, read mode. And then, hopefully somewhere, I will find a leftover bit of energy to do what I love so very much. I was saying to a beautiful teacher friend today that currently I’m in a tricky spot: teaching funds my studio but my studio needs me full time to fully fund itself. For now, a cold shower and serve quiche and salad. Fingers crossed brush lands on hand later on xxx . . . . . #karlaakehurstart #hardworkingwoman #artflowsession #artforsale #artforthehome #artgallery #artstudio #abstractartist #artistsoninstagram #australianartist #brisbaneartist #contemporaryart #homedecor #housedesign #homeinteriors #workingfromhome #businesswoman #workingnights #melbourneart #newpainting #tiredmummy #girlboss #sydneyartist

Today is my in laws 37th wedding anniversary and even though my beautiful mother in law is not with us anymore she certainly is in our hearts and thoughts. When I showed this to my father in law a couple of weeks ago he recognised Nobby's Beach instantly and said when Kathy was working up there years ago they would walk along it when he visited. So this original is going to be framed and put up in their home, it can't replace her but hopefully it can help him remember all those wonderful times they had together and how a simple walk along the beach is so special ❤ Prints are now up on the website and you can have one in your home soon to remember it's the simple, little things in life that matter most! #landscapepainting #landscapeart #nobbysbeach #beautifulocean #acrylicart #pai#paintingsforsale #ilovethebeach #artforyourwalls #artforsale #australianart #australianartist #wollongong #wollongongartist #illawarra #shellharbour #albionpark #beachart #fillyourwalls #artist #artistofinstagram #artoftheday #forsale #painting #anniversary #printsforsale #trusttheprocess #newcastle #paintyourheartout #beachscape
