reach: by carmen torbus

oh yes, reaching. i love this painting by carmen torbus, and the reminder within it. if we don't reach for the things we want to be, do, and have, how will we ever receive them?

carmen says this painting "is a reminder to me to keep reaching and that everything we need is within reach."

everything we need is in reach.
really believing that is so empowering, isn't it? and it also reminds me of the saying "we will never receive more than we can handle." i love that one.

you can see more of carmen's work on her blog, in her etsy shop, and you can follow her on twitter, too!

*thank you carmen, for your gorgeous work and lovely reminder!*

  4. Love this painting- would love to see it hanging above my desk.

  5. Oh my gosh, I love this! Thanks for sharing :)

  6. not only do i love her work, but i also admire how carmen tackles her thoughts on huge canvases - it goes with this sentiment so well, and it gives me encouragement to work on bigger pieces.
