Thanks in part to Kelly Rae Roberts and her #kellyraeshearts on Instagram, I am always looking for little hearts everywhere. Usually, if you’re intentionally seeking them out, you won’t find any. They just tend to present themselves when you are least looking.
Which, I guess, is like love itself. Although I don’t seem to find that
whether I’m looking for it or not ha ha!
This particular one I really like – I found it at Hungry Hollow Beach in Bunbury, on a recent road trip, and believe it may be a piece of weathered coral rock. I keep thinking I should do something with it, incorporate it into some artwork or another, but it’s so perfect on its own. I might actually just frame it.
I tend to doodle hearts a lot too. Doodle experts (now there’s a title!) would probably say that means something very deep and meaningful, but I just like drawing them. My notepads and work papers are covered in them, which is probably not ideal and makes me look like a love-starved teenager. I balance it out by also doodling stars everywhere.
Is there anything you particularly like to find, when out and about? Perhaps you collect interesting rocks, sea glass or feathers? Do you purposefully look or just enjoy finding them by accident? Do you display them somewhere, use them in your art, or just delight in discovering them, and then put them back where you found them?
Thanks for reading – hope you find some happy hearts in your world today x
