Artist Inspiration: Hannah Lemholt

It is the end of the first day we took possession
of our new home, and since I crave a deep exhale,
I choose to turn to an artist whose work
is a balm for my soul…Hannah Lemholt.

with transparency on her site

Breathing easier yet?

What a relief to take possession of our new place,
and although we won’t be able to live in it just yet,
I am hopeful this next leg of the journey
(which involves a fairy with a sledgehammer,
sixtythousandmillion gallons of white paint.
and no scene even remotely resembling this
artist’s atmospheric work) will be fruitful.

i have my eye on an original panton chair like this in a shop…
it’s perfectly broken and cracked open which is just fine pour moi.

Hope these magical images from Hannah
light your senses and fill you with peaceful inspiration.

Peace to you right where you are.

    Best of Luck coming your way on your new home. With every motion you take you will be making it your own and it will be a wonderful respite for your family once you are done. Looking forward to some pictures and progress. Slow and steady wins the race, try not to over do if you can. Sending you lots of energy vibes,

    Congrats!!! A deep exhale indeed. Something I try to remind myself when I'm in the middle of a remodel that seems to have no end in sight is to "enjoy the process!" I enjoy your posts, they are always peaceful:)

    Hi Michele, no the fun begins….the good, the bad, the beauty, and the ugly! And you get to make all the changes you want with your new home. Don't over think it, just let it tell you what it wants to be, and add all the love into you have to give. I know that your home will have a wonderful presence about it, and I suspect you will give it space to breathe.

    So love the inspiration photos here of Hannahs abode, quiet and soothing to the soul of an artist. That bench is so simple but speaks volumes in front of her sofa. It's going to be hard to wait this out with you, so get onto that house and share often, so excited to see what it becomes.

    See you soon dear,

    Yes, breathing easier now;) She looks so pretty with the flowers in her hair. Such a peaceful vibe..
    I'm so happy that you have started this new chapter Michele. There will be ups and downs but the end result will be spectacular!
